Les Becs de gaz

Maurice Rollinat 1846 (Châteauroux) – 1903 (Ivry-sur-Seine)



Les becs de gaz des mauvais coins
Éclairent les filous en loques
Et ceux qui, pleins de soliloques,
S’en vont jaunes comme des coings.

Complices des rôdeurs chafouins
Guettant le Monsieur à breloques,
Les becs de gaz des mauvais coins
Éclairent les filous en loques.

Et coups de couteaux, coups de poings,
Coups de sifflets, cris équivoques,
Spectres hideux, mouchards baroques,
Tout ce mystère a pour témoins
Les becs de gaz des mauvais coins.
