Rondeau

Fleas, stink, pigs, mold,
  The gist of the Bohemian soul,
  Bread and salted fish and cold.
 
  Leeks, and cabbage three days old,
  Smoked meat, as hard and black as coal;
  Fleas, stink, pigs, mold.

  Twenty eating from one bowl,
  A bitter drink -it's beer, I'm told-
  Bad sleep on a straw in some filthy hole,
  Fleas, stink, pigs, mold,
  The gist of the Bohemian soul,
  Bread and salted fish and cold.
