Le marabout

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Marabout, vieux marabout,
Que dénigres-tu du bout
De ton bec
Veuf aigri, piteux rabbin
Aux habits pleins de crottins
Déjà secs,
Ton facies de noir bigot
(honteux d'être à l'amigo)
Jure avec
Tes allures de dandy.
Mais puisque le cœur t'en dit,
Sans autre salamalec
Claque du bec au [blanc-bec]1
Que je suis.
