Le Havre: Fire(s) at the prison

Beautiful fireworks
At the penitentiary of Le Havre
Nocturnal and solidarian
Notwithstanding the spotlights of the watchtowers
On this first day of the year

Inside, the prisoners
Not considering it to shut their mouth
Taunted authority.
Finally, we went away, somehow
Hoping they will be able to escape!

Translators’ note:
In the original French acrostic, the first letter of each line spells out ‘bonne année’ (Happy New Year).
