Babelfishing Poetry: 'Not Close To Stopping'

Babelfishing Poetry: "Not Close To Stopping"

Hello! It's Friday! It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday. How did that happen? It's a mystery to me. (No biggie; I am easily mystified.) Anyway, Friday means more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week I rummaged around in the chaotic grab-bag that is my list of song possibilities and came up with this 1977 monster hit from Fleetwood Mac, "Don't Stop" to Babelfish (watch vintage video clip here).

Not Close To Stopping

If you keep your eyes
open on this day,
some time will have
a quiet smile,
if you want to wake up.

You see not the same.
Things are different in mind.

I do not think popping tomorrow.
Gan-based, closed,
please stop here.
Better than in the past.
Better than ever.

Yesterday, I went yesterday.

Why was the time?
I actually had some things.
If your life is bad for you,
just want to learn more
about our future.

I want you to smile.
He just does not address
the short period of time.

I know you did not
believe it's true.
This does not mean
I want you to get hurt.

Not close to stopping.
They never stop nearby.
Here, there, better than ever.

Yesterday, I went.
I had 9,665 people.
You cannot go back.
You cannot go back.
