Babelfishing Poetry: "I Was A Small Tree"

Hello!  And how are you today?  Bright and breezy?  Cheeky and cheerful?  Chipper?  Top-notch?  Super-duper?  Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed?  Full of sunshine?  Rarin' to go?  Full of ginger?  Ready to face the day?  Hunky-dory?  In the swim? Peachy-keen?  On the ball?  Up to snuff? A-OK?  All of those put together?  None of the above?  No matter, because, regardless, it's time for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, convolute the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today, by special request from The Jan, is A-Ha's pensive "Locust" (listen to song here.)  Enjoy. 

I Was A Small Tree

Three.  They were afraid.
Innocent conduit is a man.
I was just too much.
We are of the sentience.

Change our lives?
I heard you say
you're welcome.

I do not know duty.
I do not know impact.
I do not know cut.
10 watts.

In Denmark, it does not matter.
Heaven and Earth, a funeral.
Rabbit sieve,
you just fly.

I was
a small tree,
and distribution
will contact you soon.

My dream:
Erase the grey form
in the eyes of all.

From slate blue to the black
come dust.                        
A grasshopper.

Do not be afraid of
innocent people this month.
