In this article, I will be interested in the use which was made of poetry (and particularly of a very famous poem by Paul Verlaine) during the second world war to deceive the German intelligence services and to inform the French resistance and the Allies about the impending landing. I will analyze poetry from the angle of its discrete, secret, asymmetrical, asynchronous communication abilities and in terms of the logic of mathematical encryption offered by modern computer science.
