Babelfishing Poetry: "Come See What Is Completely Ignored"

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, scramble the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?  You would?  Well hot diggity, you're in luck, because here's this week's installment!

The featured song, chosen at random (and also, because of alphabetization, it was close to the top of the list) is punk band Bad Religion's "Sorrow" (watch video here, or watch a live solo acoustic performance by band member Greg Gaffin here).  Enjoy. 

Come See What Is Completely Ignored

Listen to me, Pope.
What are you, disappointed?
I am of that day;
after that, it's all the problems.

Come see
what is completely ignored.
All Tao unwinnable, the only
proud father and son.

I wouldn't have liked it,
the affliction of this, and what is this pain?
She was smart and powerful creatures; what happened?

So I thought,
too bad.
Yes, there are comics,
and it's sad.

When soldiers hear a gun,
the King and Queen dry the ear.
We are only redeemed to pass it; there's not enough of Caesar's and 'ihristos.
I guess you can believe a little medicine.

There will be no poverty.
Yes, it is funny,
and sad.
