Babelfishing Poetry: "This Story Of Drifting"

Hello! And how are you today? Good? Bad? Indifferent? None of the above? All of the above?

Well, it's Friday, regardless, and that means 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, goof around with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today is a very special Babelfish. It is an epic story of man vs. nature . . . masterful in its realistic detail and psychological insight . . a powerful exploration of the very meaning of life . . . Ladies and gentlemen, it is my immense honor to present . . .

*drum roll*

. . . "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island" (watch video here).

This Story Of Drifting

Sit back
and talk directly to you.
This little boat,
starting at the 10 ports
on a fateful journey,
will hear the story.
A friend who
is a huge
sailing vessel,
the captain was
brave and confident
3 hours a day.
Tour of five passengers,
three hours to set sail.

The weather
started getting rough,
a small container.
If not for the courage
of the workers,
fear will be lost.
Minoxidil fish,
Fathead minnow,
would be lost.
Minoxidil will be lost!

Ship set out
in the desert and the
unknown shores
of Gilligan Island
on the ground.
The captain and his wife
are millionaires.
Movie stars,
and Mary Ann,
here on Gilligan Island.

this story of drifting,
where they long have been
for a long time,
they must make
the most of things.
This is hard work.

So join us here
each week.
My friend is here
to get a smile
from Gilligan's Island.
Seven adrift, you!
