'The war situation has developped not necessarily to Japan's advantage' - Hirohito


Nous pensions nous trouver dans l'ouvert d'un champ,

Face aux colonnes montantes d'idées inexorables

Et d'une diversité impossible à maîtriser.

Si, au rang de nos principes, nous ne cédions rien

Ni en raison ni en rimes,

Lors de notre apparition, nous choisîmes sans peur

De porter pantalon garance et monter sabre au clair.


En tout état de cause, il s'agissait d'argumenter sans fin avec

Le dépassement du monde, qui toujours souhaite se percher

Sur nos épaules.

Le combat était passionnant certes, mais il masquait l'essentiel;

Par exemple, fascinés par les reflets de notre langage,

Attendions nous vraiment que justice nous soit rendue

Sous la forme d'un ganglion enflé à la base de notre cou?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
