Babelfishing Poetry: "They Called Her Names"

Babelfishing Poetry: "They Called Her Names"

Hello, lovely to see you, so glad you've popped by my humble little blog! It being Friday, you must be here for the Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, nudge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Featured today is the Black Crowes' 1991 song "She Talks To Angels" (watch video here). Enjoy.

They Called Her Names

He did not mention
a specific company,
the word addiction.
Yeah, she's your family
after you meet her,
she'll tell you in Goa.

She painted her black eyes,
and now the evening,
under the shadow of pulling tight.

She kept her purse hair.
She wore a cross around her neck.
Yes, the hair is from a person
with a cross from the boy.
She was still not satisfied.

They offer a smile that it's painful.
Not a good pain.
The pain will like it.
Pain doing very well.

She says to the angel,
said, "They are in her name."

She calls, "Oh yes!"
She is talking to an angel.

"They are in her name,"
she calls, "her name."

They call her out.
They called her names.
