the Bourbaki

cacophony, the Bourbaki,
the harmony, the golden key;
i think this is the life
for you and me

the crystal mass, the halfback pass,
the demitasse, the world of glass;
i think this is our passage,
steerage class

the sacrament, the subtle bent,
impediment, the sibilant:
i think these are a clue
to what is meant --

the sonorous, the valorous,
the decorous, the omnibus;
i think the Bourbaki
are really

us
