Babelfishing Poetry: "The Ratio You Desire"

Babelfishing Poetry: "The Ratio You Desire"

Hello! You well? I hope so; well and happy.  I am not well, and I am unhappy about my continuing unresolved prescription drama, but I am happy that we have been getting a lot of rain lately, which is always welcome in our drought-plagued state.  And I am also happy 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, revise the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's song, chosen at random, is electronic rockers Awolnation's "Kill Your Heroes" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

The Ratio You Desire

The old man is a man.
human suffering with no customer.
Peter statement:
"Complete song performers. Song, love affairs called dye.
Nice going here.  Don't let the fear of o Muhammad terrorist articles."

The first,
the perpetrators.
Outside the Inbox?
Inputed flowers.
Tiptoe and private too, o Muhammad.
Aloha refusal
before the old private, in front of our eyes.

Family sacrifice, he said.
Fly, fly, crying out, "Love bugs!"
All of them die
on a daily basis.
Instant children.
Don't worry; we,
we love you forever.
The ratio you desire, an elephant.
