Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is Not Correct"


Hello blog peeps.  How's everything going?  Hunky-dory?  Yes?  Glad to hear it.  Seeing as it's Friday, you're just in time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, convolute the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

"Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes" is a popular old English song, and it is the subject of this week's Babelfish (watch a video clip of noted soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf singing the song here, or listen to not-quite-so-noted boy soprano Matthew Teague's version here, or watch a lovely rendition on the accordion here).  Enjoy. 


This Is Not Correct

Snow, drinking.
Me and my beliefs.
Or, leave a snout under one parent on the glass.

I have to ask; wine?

Spirit of desire,
he claimed divine drink.
However, the strength of Jupiter, honey SIP,
this is not a change.

To you, I was sent to Crown Horses Lodge.
Not so much understanding
to hope,
non-drying.

But, just do not let it breathe!
And this will be sent
from the very beginning.  
And the smells, I swear!
This is not correct,
but that's all there is to it!
