Babelfishing Poetry: "Bikuni"


Hello, lovely to see you, so glad you've popped by my unpretentious little blog!  You are just in time for a special holiday edition of Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tweak the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Of all our patriotic songs, I think "America The Beautiful" is the loveliest.  As a matter of fact, I think it is so beautiful it should be our national anthem (it would be a lot easier to sing than the Star Spangled Banner, that's for sure), so it's the featured song for Independence Day today (listen to Ray Charles' version here, or the U.S. Marine Band's rendition here, or the One-Man Barbershop Quartet's arrangement here).  Enjoy, and Happy Fourth! 


Bikuni

What do you want with a good old form?
Red, wavy yellow.
I will request the purple mountain.
Night of high dance!
USA!  USA!
Room service gave priority to Carless.
Public interest and brotherhood
on the sea, the sea water.

Beautiful patriotic dream,
we see it during the YEAR.
City lights,
the eyes of people and undimmed water.
Bikuni!  Bikuni!
Room service gave priority to Carless.
Thus it is said again.
No.  It seems that color!
