Babelfishing Poetry: "Bank Barrister Explosion"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Bank Barrister Explosion"

Hello!  And how are you today?  Good?  Yes?  No?  In-between?  Rather not say? Keeping it a secret? It's a mystery?  Being coy about it?  Can't decide?  None of the above?  While you mull that over, let's enjoy 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.

Because of the untimely death of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan on Monday, this week's feature honors her memory with the band's 1994 protest song "Zombie"(watch a gilded O'Riordan performing in the video here).  Enjoy. 

Bank Barrister Explosion

Another factor is your opinion.
Competitive children.
There is no advantage in the violence.
Who made the mistake?

But I saw myself.
I'm starving.
You know the landlord.
They struggle to reason off the nervousness.
Banks and bombs,
and he gave it
the same --
a loud scream.

Some women.
My heart is melting.
Keep up the quiet violence,
to make mistakes.

Fifteen years they demanded
the same.
They're just a fight.
Bank barrister explosion,
and he gave it.
Actually, the address is dead.

Enclosed area.
Society, society, society.
What do you think of them?
Zombies, zombies, zombies.
Alas, alas, well done.
Chonad, two, two, two.
I remember!
That's right!
