Babelfishing Poetry: "Isaac Is A Magician"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Isaac Is A Magician"


OK, boys and girls, ready or not, it's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, mix up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This weeks it's roots rock band The Iguanas' "Oye Isabel" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 


Isaac Is A Magician

Ya Kafu, my great father,
can't get a stamp.

Yes, but Elizabeth, I love you.

But you have so much fun,
that's why I sing.

Jacob the magician,
puppet Diodi Soldo Mingo and Tian,
meet the Kvantoby Group.

Step your way
in front of a toy house.

Don't believe that
this is enough for you.

Elizabeth fell in love,
deep and true love.

I love you all.

Ah, Isaac is a magician.

Babelfishing Poetry: "I Wish He Was An Authentic Drunk"


Hello? How are you?  Hope you're very well, fine, and dandy, and are weathering your shelter in place orders reasonably well.  Remember to wash your hands!!  And don't touch your face!!

Do you know what day it is?  That's right, it's Friday, and time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, massage the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

And not only is it Friday, it's also Green Day!  Today we feature Green Day's song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," seeing as its refrain of "I walk alone" is ever so appropriate for this time of social distancing (watch video here).  Stay safe, and enjoy. 


I Wish He Was An Authentic Drunk

My daughter in law left.
He just knows girdle.
I'm not sure,
but my home was left alone.

You go like this.
Along the way, wild improvisations fade.
Namijo Castle wants to sleep.

One person,
complete.

My shadow drew them down on the floor.
My heart jumps.
Sometimes I wish he was an authentic drunk.
In a nutshell, I am traveling in Japan.

Monday Movies: Augur Action

Monday Movies: Augur Action


Monday Movies: 20 seconds (more or less) of video from the world around me.

This week: Thirty-eight noisy seconds of augur action (as an out-of-frame forklift beeps and creates a screechy racket moving around stacks of steel beams) at the construction site next door in preparation for putting up a new apartment complex.  Enjoy.

Babelfishing Poetry: "I'm A Key Waterfall"

Babelfishing Poetry: "I'm A Key Waterfall"


Once again, get ready for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, kludge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week it's electronic dance duo The Chainsmokers (featuring Daya) and their Top-5 hit "Don't Let Me Down" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 


I'm A Key Waterfall

Denmark tabby belief wall.
Now, the shock is very close.
Hurry, I want to look impressive.
You can, however, be the name of Bokob.

Injunction stamp observer.
Self-reliance.
But now no one supports me practicing zippo.

The private school is very happy.
Yes, it is very near now.
I do not dare true.
I think I'm sorry.
Hey, hey, hey.
If you're still here, you really want to do what you want here.
True involuntary trust.

Revenue collection.
Don't drop or fall down, down, down, down.
Desolation and embarrassment.
It's not Naquvxo 'Mohmog Falls.
No, I'm a key waterfall, I'm Quvvx O'Momog.
