Boudu Saved from Drowning (1932) Michel Simon created his most memorable role as an anarchic bum whom a bourgeois bookseller and family decide to rescue and civilize, all with disastrously comic results in this Jean Renoir classic film.

The feral clown thumbs his nose

At civic respectability,

boudu1

Spits where he wants and throws

Tantrums with churlish glee.

 

Row, row, row your boat,

refugees-lybia-4890

Frightened out to sea —

Something blew the world apart

Claiming to set you free.

Merrily, merrily, merrily,

Nothing to eat at all,

food-9e18ee5c4613f8c6d85cb141c78f8704

Toss the sick overboard

Into a whale’s craw.

Stuck to the guts of a giant eel,

Life is but a scream

Nobody hears and nobody cares

On their giant tv screen.

Children tighten suicide vests

To form cluster bombs.

Row, row, row till the blessed

Crawl back into the womb.

Pratfalls cannot enthrall,

theimmigrant-alt

Slipping on bloodshed.

What’s Aleppo after all,

If not dog food for the dead!
