FINAL ACT BY BONNIE:
He went as fast as his legs could take him
this scruffy ragamuffin.
Through alleyways and boulevards he was on his way a puffin'.
Soon he would round the corner of La Rue de Sainte Honoré
through peoples' legs and winding streets he soon would find his way.
It was fine with the kids, all the hugs and kisses
but he belonged in the salon with society's minxes
how he loved to upset their apple carts
With his crazy antics, this little upstart
even Madame Chou Chou was heard to whisper
"How I dearly miss that little trickster."
M. Balzac entered the salon that day
"Fear not fair lady", he seemed to say.
"For I have come back for good at last to stay
Gone is my wanderlust, and to this day,
I will stay faithful to my friends forever
But I am still a scamp, a scoundrel and clever!
And if I do not hear a sincere "Merci"
Your shoes may make their way off the balcony!
Balzac! Monsieur Bergeron cried out with joy
Oh mon petit chien, my sweet little boy.
The clients were hushed by this beautiful scene
all their protests were just a silly smokescreen.
All’s well that ends well I believe they say
A sweet ending to this magnificent day!
Le Petit Théâtre de Chimères would like to honor and thank The Dutchess, entry #1 and Jaqueline entry#2 for the work and great thought they put into their drafts. I raise my glass to you dear friends and lovers of literature, beauty, and dreams. Et à vous tous, à la vôtre!
