Babelfishing Poetry: "There Is A Cash Machine"

Babelfishing Poetry: "There Is A Cash Machine"


It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday.  Well, anyway, 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, futz around with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's feature, a 1972 song by the UK space-rock group Hawkwind, is "Silver Machine" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 


There Is A Cash Machine

I used to be.
Come,
buy a car for cash,
and you will always be touching.
They do not seem to disagree, and we can help you because we have to repair
Heaven and Earth in the boat to the other side.

There is a cash machine.
They took fire.

Power lines.
Tower.
There is a cash machine.

There is a cash machine.
The gallows-maker said:
I just go up to the cash machine.
I am impressed and it's always there,
secrets and all.
Antiseptic, clearly.
He saw all the green.

There is a cash machine.
I think ATM?
There is a cash machine.
