Babelfishing Poetry: You Can Stop Vitaunguzwa

Babelfishing Poetry: You Can Stop Vitaunguzwa

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

This time it's Modern English's hit "I Melt With You," which the Babelfishing process eventually makes sound like some kind of alien public service announcement (video here).

You Can Stop Vitaunguzwa

I have seen your face,
the fall in all regions of the world.
They do not always know the truth --
the common cold.

Nature of the world:
you and I can stop vitaunguzwa.

I've noticed the gap has been
the continuous improvement
of time.

I have nothing with you
and the natural world.
And you can stop vitaunguzwa.
