Le Chant du Styrène

Here's a link to a beautiful poem by Raymond Queneau called "Le Chant du Styrène". A beautiful ode to plastic. I first heard about this in the 90s when I bought the book "L'Utopie du tout Plastique". Sorry for the non speaking French people, but I didn't find an English translation. And it wouldn't be the same in English anyway.
