La Poubelle

“What’s trash for one is
to another as treasure.”
How quaint, yet true.
Garbage to the French
an exotic honey, sweet
upon my tongue!
Even to eyes upon
page a glittering jewel,
pleasing and well-formed.
Rate of language’s inflation
determined merely by message.
However, foreign tongue may
lend to the un-favored
certain delectablility.
