    He would not take that direction , to the darkness, to follow her. He walked towards the faintly humming,glowing town,quickly.

    It is Dh but the incestous one rather than the dirty one if that makes sense.

    In French for the rime...





    La V�rit�



    Quelle est cette chim�re impuissante et st�rile,

    Cette divinit� que pr�che � l'imb�cile

    Un ramas odieux de pr�tres imposteurs ?

    Veulent-ils me placer parmi leur sectateurs ?

    Ah ! jamais, je le jure, et je tiendrai parole,

    Jamais cette bizarre et d�goutante idole,

    Cet enfant de d�lire et de d�rision

    Ne fera sur mon coeur la moindre impression.

    Content et glorieux de mon �picurisme,

    Je pr�tends expirer au sein de l'atheisme

    Et que l'inf�me Dieu dont on veut m'alarmer

    Ne soit con�u par moi que pour le blasph�mer.

    Oui, vaine illusion, mon �me te d�teste,

    Et pour t'en mieux convaincre ici je le proteste,

    Je voudrais qu'un moment tu puisses exister

    Pour jouir du plaisir de te mieux insulter.



    D.A.F De Sade [1st strophe]

    " There was a Zanuck coterie which consisted of those whom he invited to his house in Palm Springs where croquet was played. As a Hollywood cult croquet was at that time played not extensively but big. The recognised mastrs were Zanuck, Sam Goldwyn, Negulesco and George Sanders. Into these areas Pamela had not established a bridgehead. But I got to know one semi-social facet of Zanuck since I had now been welcolmed into the executives' dining room."

    An omnibus across the bridge

    Crawls like a yellow butterfly,

    And, here and there, a passer-by

    Shows like a little restless midge.



    Big barges full of yellow hay

    Are moved against the shadowy wharf,

    And, like a yellow silken scarf,

    The thick fog hangs along the quay.



    The yellow leaves begin to fade

    And flutter from the Temple elms,

    And at my feet the pale green Thames

    Lies like a rod of rippled jade.
