Pretty scary when this is all I remember from six years of french classes.

-Mike

-je ne parle pas-
Je ne parle pas.
Je ne parle pas at all.
Je ne parle pas.
Je ne parle pas to the wall.
Je ne parle pas when I fall.
Je ne parle pas at all.

Will this fractured conscience ever speak?
Ha, not for at least a week.
Je ne parle pas day or night.
Je ne parle pas at the traffic light.
Je ne parle pas when I'm feeling all right.
Je ne parle pas at all.

The poet was disconnected from his host.
The poet doesn't believe in lonely ghosts.
The poet doesn't care what matters most.
Mais il ecrit tout le temps, vous savez.

Some days are like an eerie calm.
Some nights are like reading palms.
A few of both are like planting bombs.
Nous ne desirons pas parler.

Ah, it's been thirty years, my friend
And je ne me repelle rien
I can't remember anyway
Je ne parle pas francais
Your French it seems is at its peak
Sounds good to me, c'est magnifique!
Cute poem
Sorry for my spelling
