Adieu, adieu, adieu.

French again! This ghost speaks a lot of French for a Danish guy!
I guess the afterlife is like France.
Which for me, sounds pretty good.
I’d very much enjoy an afterlife of watching the sea undulate along the Riviera.
If I cannot eat good bread and cheese (Is there food in the afterlife?)
I’d at least enjoy the atmosphere.
For the English of this period, though, with their French animosity,
Perhaps to go to France would be to end up in hell.
The flames that purge his gross sins
Are French ones. The infernal fire keepers: French.
The language
Slipping into the dead
Like fish into water.
