Bonsoir Mémé et le Pépé, Bonsoir

12 Jul

 (curtain rises…both are getting into bed)

Mémé: I’m not asking you to cheat

            Only to tweak. (turning over, back to Pépé)

 Pépé: I refuse to participate, in the choices they make,

can’t you see, Just let it be!

(he does the same and turns over. now both are lying back to back)

Mémé: Get off your arse then, and turn off the light!

            There ain’t nothing right… left to be seen this night.

Pépé: I thought it was your turn

To turn out the lights, tonight.

Mémé: You want to fight?

(as a matter of fact)

            I still got a good right.

(giggling)

Pépé: What is it that you want me to do?

            Again. Before I lay down.

(slowly getting up)

Mémé: Go and tell the grandchildren

            To stop this, this… “Messing around!

…La vie ne est plus le pont de d’Avignon.”

Pépé:  

  (re-enters and gets into bed facing mémé)

            Bonsoir Mémé.

Mémé: Bonsoir Pépé.

(Both start humming  ‘Sous le pont de d’Avignon’)

(Curtain closes)

 

On the lighter side, in my “research”, I stumbled on this and if you have the time… [growing up with this song, I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this.]

    It is so cute, ZQ! It is reliving the friendly banter one needs to rekindle the old Tiger in oneself again. It’ll work wonders when both are game!

    Ha. There is playfulness that we do not always see in love. The opening intrigues me a bit. Is choosing not to participate even a choosing. Dancing is Def freedom.

    Ha, I think a little confrontation is what leads directly to the bed.. This is like a Shakespeare comedy.

    Ha, I remember the repartee, the laughter, I had forgotten. Thanks for reminding me. Love where they are both humming, likely through big grins…….

    This is new to me. It feels very light and fun. I assume they do in bed as under the bridge, things that they can not do elsewhere? Or is this a children’s song?

    The old couple arguing is a common theme but here is a new spin. Well written.
