Back Next No French

Eating quietly
Sipping up her soup
When tapped on the shoulder
By the waiter,
"Madam Wasel,
sere is a bomb
planted somewhere
in our restaurant."
"I am sorry
I don't understand
A word of French."

The restaurant emptied.
When she and the restaurant
Blew up
Higher and higher she went
Still unconscious
Of the happening.

Irwin R. Shaw - 1990
