You may subdue a few people

But you will never take the rich history

Of the most visited city in the world.

You may burn down their museums

But you’ll never take away their artists

Or the history they provide

To the entire world.

Mercilessly you killed

Humans without weapons

Like the coward you’ve become

But you can’t kill the rest of us

That won’t sit silently.


You may kill


And virtually for no reason

But no matter what you do

You can’t kill Paris.


Today, we are all French.

Aujourd’hui, nous sommes un.
