Babelfishing Poetry: "I Am Very Proud Of The Self-Australian"

Babelfishing Poetry: "I Am Very Proud Of The Self-Australian"


It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday.  How did that happen?  It's a mystery to me.  (I am mystified easily.)   Anyway, Friday means more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, have some fun with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

And this week's Babelfish is by special request from Raedawn, Enigma's 1994 hit "Return to Innocence" (watch oediv here) (see what I did there? ).  Enjoy. 


I Am Very Proud Of The Self-Australian

Initiation unity!
This will be first.
Return true.
Spirit sum love.
Comments and identity.

I feel free to feed poor people.
I am very proud of the self-Australian.
Mind you, my friend.
Think.
Return true.

Ryo laughs start coming after the deer.
I cried over demand, and
if you are, do not hide it.
A weak discharge phase signal, our fate.

He does not do this.
Please follow the path.
Do not use any tools.
Return true.

Follow the path.
Please follow the path.
No, do not give up.
Return true.
