Babelfishing Poetry: Angels and Canada (Oh, I Wonder Why?)

Babelfishing Poetry: Angels and Canada (Oh, I Wonder Why?)

Here's some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, adjust the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Led Zeppelin's infamous warhorse, er, ballad "Stairway To Heaven" (video here) gets Babelfished today.


Angels and Canada (Oh, I Wonder Why?)

Women, sure,
all the shiny gold!
And he points to the sky
to glow.

When and where
to find the words,
to find all the shops closed?
Uh . . . uh . . .
point blank.

"Angels and Canada,"
sign on the wall. But
they wanted you to know
sometimes words have two meanings:
believe! Creek is the singer
of that song "Misgiven Trees."

Sometimes we are all thinking,
"Oh, I wonder why?"
