BY JULES VERNE
They wanted to repair the old jalopy,
a madman wanted to level the axis:
we’ll found a cannon, it’s a mere child’s play!
And the many would have died of it!
That’s how they trifle with you!
Three madmans! Who will snatch them?
So it was ordered: cage them in!
But, bang! … Nothing cracked … just a trash!
Long live our old jalopy!
