NOV 2, reprehensible modern history: Franco-German wars

FRANCO-GERMAN (L'après-guerre)


The term Franco-German conforms

More to wars than to nachbarlich norms:

Stormy history, alarming;

L'après-guerre brought disarming.

Have I opened an old Cannes of Worms?

Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

Authors' Note:
nachbarlich (NAKH-bahr-likh): neighborly (German)

l'après-guerre (la-preh-GAYR): period immediately after the Second World War in France, approximately 1945-1948

Cannes (KAN): French town on the Côte d'Azur, famous for its luxury hotels and villas, and for its international film festival

Worms (VORMZ): German town (sometimes pronounced by anglophones as WUHRMZ) of about the same size as Cannes and Limerick, famed for its production of liebfraumilch
