All roads lead to Russia

All roads lead to Russia

The cul-de-sac which I call home
At one time would lead me to Rome,
I do not know when, why or how,
That same road, now goes to Moscow.

Muet comme une carp

Muet comme une carp

Me! muet comme une carp
Quipped Dauphy, quietish
Don't like fish, bones too sharp
But mice are quite a different dish.

Muet comme une carp: a French expression meaning as silent as a carp, or fish
In the UK we would say as quiet as a mouse.
