Babelfishing Poetry: "Foolish Constable Chuck"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Foolish Constable Chuck"

Hello, lovely to see you, so glad you've popped by my unpretentious little blog, where every Friday I feature more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, play around with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's featured song, chosen at random, is San Francisco singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson's "Bill Murray" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

Foolish Constable Chuck

I'll go to to bed.
The dream.
Bill Murray is good.
All accomplished, the journey, the world,
Boston in Japan,
Van Halen old blast,
eateth and drinketh unworthily, in a single night.
Screaming lung building.

My newborn child said, "You stupid."
I want to know what it is.
He threw it out of your mobile phone.

My name's aeroplane.
Rain moves to Portland.

One day's
walk on the beach.
Galway rain.
Said Bill-thing,
after many nights in Spain,
"It is negligible with me."
You know how people are saved.
It is right, and all things in the summer shorts

I am sleeping.
I had all the science.
There are dreams.
You wake up.
Wake up.
I awoke here.

I like it when it works.
Foolish Constable Chuck pretended to be
my hands, go down swinging.
Of them whom thou hast given me, that they may know you.
