"Les dents, la bouche" (1900, The teeth, the mouth) is a poem by Jean-Pierre Brisset which relies heavily on paronymy.

Les dents, la bouche.
Les dents la bouchent,
l'aidant la bouche.
L'aide en la bouche.
Laides en la bouche.
Laid dans la bouche.
Lait dans la bouche.
L'est dam le à bouche.
Les dents-là bouche.

English translation

Teeth, mouth
Teeth block the mouth
The mouth helps this blocking
Teeth are the help in the mouth
Teeth are ugly in the mouth
There’s something ugly in the mouth
There is milk in the mouth
Damage is done to the mouth
Block, or hide, these teeth!

Dutch translation

Tanden, mond
Tanden verstoppen de mond
De mond helpt dit verstoppen
Tanden zijn de hulp in de mond
Tanden zijn lelijk in de mond
Er is iets lelijk in de mond
Schade wordt gedaan aan de mond
Er zit melk in de mond
Verstop die tanden!
