Time of Choices (2022 Elections for French Presidency 1/3)

by Francis L 5 months ago in social commentary
Report Story

Candidates for the First Round, after preselections.

"Sacré Bordel"/("Goddamm Mess"), brothers Bigflo & Oli*, 2022

When stranger people come in here

Eating as before, drinking beer

Such a thing won't last or adhere

Each inch lost front of islamism

Ends into rest for pacifism

Electoral circular of Eric ZEMMOUR (photo montage)

Fuck their proceeds - our lives will balk

Until the capitalism slumps

Necessity subsists to walk

Now, with simplicity plus thumbs

Yet to play more humorous trumps

Electoral circular of Philippe POUTOU (photo montage)

Genius from the bottle seems out

Experts expect excerpts to win

And in the same time the winds hand

Revelations which strike a pin

Sprightly shot in a way to scout

Electoral circular of Emmanuel MACRON (photo montage)

Everything differs from the past

Veracity tags a new picture

Endowing a better structure

Risks to listen hasten the blast

Yellow hairs might show a fresh cast

Electoral circular of Marine LE PEN (photo montage)

Help the blooming days to return

Using the force of folks, this urn

Misgiving is not for the screen

Any wisp counts to make it burn

Nudges when chummy bring the green

Electoral circular of Fabien ROUSSEL (photo montage)

Light and bright from the biggest town

On the way to challenge and brave

Night and dark knights would put it down

Elderly facts show what we sown

Rights might settle in a new wave

Electoral circular of Anne HIDALGO (photo montage)

When workers access the power

Out of pressure, out of postures

Using tools they built with anger

Labor provides happy gestures

Dawn happens, seeds come to flower

Electoral circular of Nathalie ARTHAUD (photo montage)

I know the things my dwellers lack

My thoughts denote from those whose wrack

People need security, wage

Economic rundowns, some gage

Leave waste where it should - plus courage

Electoral circular of Valérie PECRESSE (photo montage)

Anti-freedom out of command

Mangles too much the society

Open the sky, try sobriety

Note our strengths then liberate them

Go through hardships, make your own stem

Electoral circular of Nicolas DUPONT-AIGNAN (photo montage)

Bring innovations in this spring

Read programs, compare each longing

Our holographic forth and style

Ask for a rewrite - plus a smile

Deafness will never stop our zing

Electoral circular of Jean-Luc MELENCHON (photo montage)

Reach the marks of success will mean

Achievements to be done anew

I wish progress to lead the crew

Now time has come to slew the dew

Yearning climate deserve a clean

Electoral circular of Yannick JADOT (photo montage)

Remains of a too much active

Isolate location look sad

Nobody can peacefully live

Grieving alone - not feeling glad

Such tall love should not stay captive

Electoral circular of Jean LASSALLE (photo montage)
