LE BON BOUT DU BATON.

(The right end of the stick by H. Macdiarmid, Ed Penguin 1985, Vol.1)
Je pense que vous tenez tous le bâton par le bon bout,
Mon ami Chrétien ou païen, extraverti ou introverti,
Mon ami mort, vivant ou à naître-le problème
Est que tous vos bâtons n’ont qu’un seul bout.

« Point Defect » -Traduction par J.A.

The right end of the stick.

I think you’ve all got the right end of the stick,
My Christian or Pagan, extrovert or introvert friend,
My dead friend, my live, my unborn- but the trouble
Is just that all your sticks have only one end.

H. MacDiarmid (Ed. Penguin 1985).
