Babelfishing Poetry: "Hold Me Like This Child!"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Hold Me Like This Child!"

Hello, how are you?  How was your week?  Mine was fraught with drama.  Fraught, I tell you, fraught.  But now it's time to unwind, take a deep breath, and enjoy some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, kludge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today we are Babelfishing Paul Simon's 1987 hit "You Can Call Me Al" (watch Paul trying not to crack up at Chevy Chase in the video here).  Enjoy. 

Hold Me Like This Child!

A man walking on the street.
He said: ?! Why
do I soft in the middle,
Why do I tender?
My life very difficult
for the rest of the image.
I need a chance.
I want to save the fire.
Did not end in a tomb,
drawing boxes.
This material,
bone material,
and the London
dogs of the Far East,
his beer belly entrance,
bright beer belly,
away from me,
and hold me like this child!

As you know,
I think this is interesting.

Have fun,
Then I must be old friends.
You can call me Betty.
And when you contacted me, Betty,
you can call me base!
