Quel une Fail!??

I thought I had written the next
Victor Hugo-esque,
French essay of this decade
Should have been celebrated
With a crown on my head
That good was the essay

Then Mon professeur
Starts to discuss
Page by Page
My Victor Hugo-esque text
Turns into Henry Miller
And I can feel the ship sinking
That had its mast flowing
I wish I hadn’t attended
This enlightening lecture at all.

This poem was inspired by the style of writing in Nissim Ezekiel’s SOAP.
