Babelfishing Poetry: "We"

Babelfishing Poetry: "We"


Hello!  And how are you today?  Good?  Yes?  No?  None, or perhaps all of the above?  Well, no matter what, you are just in time for this week's Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, poke and prod the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

I heard Dire Straits' "So Far Away" on the car radio yesterday, so it's featured this week (read lyrics and listen to song here).  Enjoy. 


We

We
sat, castles standing,
propelled other.

Sun?
We.

We
completed a cumulative-sum love,
we.

We
accumulated a very hand machine,
propelled other.

One came, our cumulative completion, a demand,
we.

Sun, rain,
propelled other.

Sense us!
Nurses throughout reason,
I.

Organization. It's good.
