Don’t forget…“know your target and what lies beyond it”
I agree 100 % with you. To justify my choice not to include that part of the rule, it’s not canonical and, for me, it’s part of the commentary about the rule.
Song of a gun (1) – Des armes, une chanson de Léo Ferré interprétée par Noir Désir.
Guns, nice and glossy,
that you need to carress as for pleasure
that you need to clean often for pleasure
the other one, of which the little girls are dreaming
Guns, blue like Earth
Guns that you have to keep warm in the depth of the soul
In the eyes, in the heart, into a woman’s arms
Guns that you keep inside you, as if you keep a riddle
Guns in the days of hiding
Under the grass, in the sky, also on the paper,
Guns that make you daydream very late while reading
and put some poetry in the speeches
Guns, guns, guns,
and on-duty poets with fingers on the trigger
to put fire at the last cigarette
at the end of a french sentence
bright as a tear
The band is Noir Désir, whose singer is know for having killed his girlfriend in a drunken fistfight and the poem is by Léo Ferré, Monte-Carlo official’s anarchist. It’s mostly about bizarre sexual perversions, resistance to oppression and litterature.
