Babelfishing Poetry: "Age-Old Cummins Castle"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Age-Old Cummins Castle"

OK, boys and girls, ready or not, it's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, mix up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's featured song, "Kansas City," was a #1 hit in 1959 for R&B artist Wilbert Harrison (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

Age-Old Cummins Castle

The city and the city of Kansas City, Kansas.
City Union, age-old Cummins in age-old Cummins Castle.
I am not some indication of form to one crazy show.

12 grapes until the end of the street.
12 grapes and city direct.
Kids of age-old Cummins, age-old Cummins wine-sum bottle.

Well, the train and I have a plan,
but the game is locked.
City Union, age-old Cummins in age-old Cummins Castle.
Spoke window body-friendly than icy enthusiastic save eyes, one-visit trillion.

Make deals however you know way, a correction.

I now live with my wife, and if you die
then we have this so-called truce, a newborn child, and new discoveries.
City of age-old Cummins Castle, age-old Cummins credit society.
I'm not a form, can have a crazy, show some signs.
