Babelfishing Poetry: "Ogi Town"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Ogi Town"

It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday, with Thanksgiving still hovering on the horizon.  Now suddenly it's behind us. How in blazes did that happen?  It's a mystery to me.  Anyhoo, being Friday, 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, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's featured song, "Jamaica Farewell," is a calypso tune popularized by Harry Belafonte (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

Ogi Town

Hot cat of the night,
the sun and the sun shines on the mountain.
I'm driving the boat, and the boat had to travel.
Jamaica: I'll stop, and I'm standing.

You are currently on the market of the future.
Women crying in the head, and surgery
in criminal cases, the alleged seasoned rice.
Ron and time is a wonderful thing.

Laughter anywhere.
Girl has been back and forth to dance with.
I must declare my heart,
however, in Mexico, I think.

I'm sorry, but I am speaking.
A few days.
My head of Taiwan, my brain.
Ogi Town, a discontinued Kingston of Taiwan.
