Babelfishing Poetry: This Box Is Excellent

Babelfishing Poetry: This Box Is Excellent

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

And today I Babelfish Van Morrison's 1971 hit "Tupelo Honey" (watch video here).


This Box Is Excellent

So, Chinese tea for me,
a big brown bag, and
drop the right to sail
around the ocean this week
into the deep sea.

Is blue as sweet as Tupelo, Honey?

This box is excellent.
This box is first class.
This case is the first lesson.

The Tupelo, Honey, yes --
as sweet as honey.

The path to our freedom
cannot be limited.
You cannot stop us,
because the eye can see.
Body armor, men,
and granite articles
intended to receive the load.

Knight -- sweet as tupelo honey.

This box is excellent.
This box is first class.
This case is the first lesson.

Tupelo, Honey --
it is as sweet as honey.
