A post-structuralist lay dying

(Son membre à la main),

Which he said, “I’ll die a happy death

Because I understand.

I understand how things are shown

(For instance, mis en scène),

Which I deconstruct constructions there

Constructed on the screen.

I‘ve toured and taught and lectured

(They all say I’m quite a talker),

Which I’ve dealt with everything

From Avatar to Riddley  Walker*.

But invite no ackers** to my wake

(They always criticize me),

Which my corpse should lie face downwards

So my friends will recognize me”.
