Babelfishing Poetry: "Anopheles G."

Babelfishing Poetry: "Anopheles G."

Hello! Would you like to see some more Babelfishing Poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, revise the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?  You would?  Well, golly gee, you're in luck, because here it comes.

This week's song is Iggy Pop's boisterous "Lust For Life" (listen to Iggy sing the song here, or listen to Mötley Crüe do a pretty good if uninspired cover of it here, or listen to strange bedfellows Tom Jones and The Pretenders sing the song here, or listen to Bruce Willis's Rugrats Go Wild movie version, with different lyrics, here).  Enjoy. 

Anopheles G.

Johnny here; yen,
alcohol and drugs.
The meat in his equipment.
Time flirting.

Oh, where is the cream he suffered him?
I accept the affliction of the third.
Yes, love the name.
Hypnotic like a chicken.

Why, then, was the only one?
OK, listen, I like you.
Life is willing to kill.

$1 million prize, I
major film.
Anopheles G. to play a leadership role.
All your filthy business, Government.

With this prize I have good million.
Yes, bed and sidewalk.
A bit of a different sound.
Alcohol and drugs.

Life is willing to kill.
Well done, and to get the rewards of success.
The life I desire,
the reward of success, well done.
