The Lockdown

Yes, madam.
He turns doing thousands of steps that just lead nowhere.
in a world of concrete, iron-bar trees, flowered,
Fleury, with despair.
 
Inhuman, diminished, and having no future,
His grub, there, on the floor, is slid under a grid.
And a bowl of water for him to have a drink.
He's alone, with no sun.
 
He has no more shadow, his unfaithful comrade
Has left, gone away
Refusing to be slave to that dull live-being
He turns, he turns, he'll always keep turning,
Till the day when, beaten, like a hurt animal,
After letting out his only and long whining
He's going to fall down, letting himself cark it
To find in death at last his only liberty.
 
Fleury-Mérogis, one day, September 76
When I lived so little, I wasn't even no one
Fleury-Mérogis, one day, September 76
Existed so little
 
MESRINE
 
O I see a tear there, yet why are you so sad ?
Poor dog, you're telling me, o, gee, what a mistake !
But he's a man, madam, he's being kept in jail
the one your colleagues have all condemned so well
When dispensing justice in Liberties' sake, Liberty !
 
Fleury-Mérogis, one day, September 76
When I lived so little, I wasn't even no one
Fleury-Mérogis, one day, September 76
Existed so little
 
MESRINE

MESRINE MESRINE MESRINE MESRINE !
 
O I see a tear there, yet why are you so sad ?
Poor dog, you're telling me, o, gee, what a mistake !
But he's a man, madam, he's being kept in jail
 
the one your colleagues have all condemned so well
MESRINE
When dispensing justice in liberties' sake,
MESRINE
He turns, he turns, he'll always keep turning
MESRINE
Till the day when, beaten, like a hurt animal,
MESRINE
 
He will fall on the floor, accepting to cark it !
