Babelfishing Poetry: A Good Rap

Babelfishing Poetry: A Good Rap

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.

Today it's Peter Gabriel's huge 1986 hit "Sledgehammer" getting re-translated a dozen times (watch the video here).

A Good Rap

You are the steam engine,
the matter of form.
Maybe on your machine,
if you put your blue sky back?
Call me what you need.

There will be a big brown bear,
from top to bottom,
left corner.

And vibration
can have your car bumper.
Cannot end happily.

I think it was a good rap.
Why do you call my name?

Oh, I can have a big impact.
This is my evidence.
