Babelfishing Poetry: "Name One Piece Of Fire"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Name One Piece Of Fire"

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, get silly with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week, for no particular reason, I'm Babelfishing the official song of the United States Air Force, "The U.S. Air Force," known informally as "The Air Force Song" and often referred to informally as "Into the Wild Blue Yonder", "Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder," or simply "Wild Blue Yonder" (watch the Dumbo's Circus singalong version of the song here).  Enjoy. 

Name One Piece Of Fire

There is something wild and blue.
The sun is rising high.
Thunder, rabbits, and, zoom-like,
other hand elbow.  Hey, man!
Below us, the fire erupted, and diving.
Welcome to Hell, voice! Welcome!
Name one piece of fire: our current life.  Hi!
U. S. Air Force stuff!
