L’accEnt de L’Ambassadeur E (Guivry, France)


IMG_0361 2

Empress Marie Antonette was
   in distress she was
        in dEspair
completement desEsperee
Her accEnts were gone
So many
   letters to write and no
      accents to put on her E
to put on her
A    to put on her
un clavier sans accEnt c’est comme
un clavier sans Do Re Mi Fa Sol
    surely over there in Utopia they must
 a stash of old accEnts, surely they must
Ambassadeur E s’il vous plait il me faut
   des é
il me faut des â
il me faut des è
    des ô beaucoup de ô
But of course ma chère enfant
  take all the accEnts you
          need take a few
çs as well
just make sure you
    take a German accEnt

(My apologies again for the lame German punchline. I will try to do better next time)
Merci mille fois cher Ambassadeur E, this is much appreciated, and is no doubt going to be very useful when the Tangerine Oncoming will dawn upon us and we will all be speaking and writing French. With accEnts.

    Empress, thanks for giving us a copy of this from the great Manoir aux Visons – MinXus Japan collection.

    This is the first time I have ever seen concrete poetry by our esteemed E – Ambassador of Utopia.

    With each work, he proves himself a worthy member of the Order of the Tangerine Mink.

    He is a master of every endeavour he pursues.

    Glad you appreciate this, especially the concrete poetry part, yes. The way he built in the word ACCENTS. Which works both in French and in English. Oh yes he is a true OTM.
