The text beneath the image reads: "Adien Paris! Mes concitoyens je vous salue! Convoquez-vous, elisez-vous, representez-vous, apostrophez-vous, éclaboussez-vous, ameutez-vous, tambourinez-vous, empoignez-vous, talochez-vous, trémoussez-vous, fous! Je m'en moque! Et je vais planter mes choux." This translates to "Paris! My fellow citizens, I greet you! Summon yourself, elect yourself, represent yourself, brawl,splash,have fun, drummer, soak up, touch, jiggle, crazy! I do not care! And I'm going to plant my cabbages."
