Bank Holiday – 1912 by William Strang

Watch his eyebrow rise
See its thick arc
He affects such
when reading French
[Monsieur est un crétin]
He will take longer
to delay our waiter
it is his petit way
of being quite superior
[Ma vie est trop courte]
But – I agree with my dog –
My life is too short
for such bullshit
Please order – now
