Babelfishing Poetry: "Your Star, You"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Your Star, You"

Once again, 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.

This week I decided to see what would happen when the fount of absurdity known as Babelfish got a hold of the well-known song from Disney's classic film Pinocchio, "When You Wish Upon A Star."  It stayed pretty innocent but took a slightly blue turn near the end.  That is the joy of Babelfish -- you never know when a translation is going to go south for no discernible reason.  Anyway, enjoy.

Your Star, You

When you want a star,
no matter who you are,
I think the heart of issues.

If your heart in your dream,
there is strong demand,
if you want.

It seems stars
and dream about it:
this is the end.

To those who love it
tend to meet in secret,
screw nails;

View their own destiny
and step through
when you sleep. 
Your star,
