Babelfishing Poetry: "Meat Bone Building"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Meat Bone Building"

I hope you've all been fine and well? No upsets? No disasters? No tornadoes, floods, unexpected sinkholes, avalanches, mudslides, blizzards, hailstorms, lightning strikes, hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, tsunamis, volcanoes, sandstorms?  I hope not, I really do.  Because that would be frightful, it really would.  So, barring the above, let's now get ready for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tart up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week it's Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" (watch Depeche Mode's video here, or watch Johnny Cash's video version here, or listen to a version by nu-metal band Lollipop Lust Kill here, or listen to Swedish rocker Jerry Williams' version here, or listen to comedic lounge lizard Richard Cheese's swingin' rendition here, or watch Sammy Hagar's video here).  Enjoy. 

Meat Bone Building

My truth, Japanese touch.

Personal human Maya,
those prayers in your blood.
Personal human Maya,
prayer of blood,

Playmates of our wisdom, our one self,
the loneliness of the genreal contractor.
Meat bone building.
Join TV.
Join TV, said I picked up
credit activities.

Dice take this personal
and thoracic chest things.
You need to use your left.
You can get married.
I knew my generosity.

My truth, Japanese touch.
Personal human Saya.
