The Flight of Madame Lefarge

The late, great Madame Lefarge
was as big as a barge
and fit snugly in a huge coffin —
one not seen very often.
As the pallbearers
descended the stairs,
the coffin broke away
becoming a descending sleigh
sliding down flight after flight
causing great fright.
The coffin split in two
And through the air Madame Lefarge flew.
Many screamed
but Madame Lefarge remained serene.
In death Madame Lefarge
became a celebrity quite large.
While some thought it all terrible,
Madame Lefarge became France’s first dirigible.
Unlike the Hindenburg burning in the sky,
Madame Lefarge was last seen waving goodbye.
