Babelfishing Poetry: "The Only Weakness Of Denmark"

Babelfishing Poetry: "The Only Weakness Of Denmark"

Hello! Friday, Friday, Friday!  Woo-hoo! *fist pump*  And it's raining here!  Woo-hoo! Take that, drought! *fist shake*  And, oh, hey, look, it's also time for 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.

Iconic singer/songwriter/musician/actor/cool dude David Bowie passed away earlier this week, so here's one of my favorite Bowie songs, from his 1973 album Aladdin Sane, "Panic in Detroit" (read lyrics [click Show More] and listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

The Only Weakness Of Denmark

This seems to be a true butterfly evara.
This is the diesel-powered valve.
The gun slowly rolling, lulling him,
this guy.
The National Philharmonic Prima Vista Band, the only people present.

We come in autumn heaven's collapse and at heaven night on East-West
What happened?  They alerted police.
Until recently, we have this.
The last survive drops of 1.

I went to school
to see their costumes, and nice to see you again.
I am, I am, and I cried out and the car was taken by using a great deal of planning, very much.
Sleeping in the car lights jump dumb.

10,000 minutes at this original beauty $.
People who deal with time processing,
of standing passengers in the district-owned
tools and peace.

I ran Windows ME, sleeping.
Detroit, the only weakness of Denmark.
I see the signs.
They tend to collect dust immediately.
I'd like to look at any person.
