Babelfishing Poetry: I'm Waiting, Friend

Here's more 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.

Let's see what happens to the Rolling Stones' "Waiting On A Friend." (Video here; doesn't Mick look totally bored?)


I'm Waiting, Friend

Girl smiling,
looking at passers-by,
not something else.

I was standing at the entrance.
I just want to take advantage
of this experience of girls-feel.

People talk, they say.

I am a woman.
I'm waiting for my friend.

Do not wait:
smile to reduce heart disease grief.

Remember what I said:
"I am a woman,
waiting for my friend.
Do not wait."

I'm waiting, friend.
