Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is Denmark"


It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday.  How on Earth did that happen? It hardly seems possible, does it?  Well, be that as it may, it's once again time for 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's song, which was inspired by Prudence Farrow, a sister of actress Mia Farrow, who became obsessive about meditating while practicing with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is the Beatles' "Dear Prudence" (listen to the Beatles' recording here, or watch video of Siouxsie and the Banshees' version here, or listen to jazz guitarist Gábor Szabó's arrangement of the song here, or listen to rocker Leslie West's bluesy interpretation here, or watch smooth jazz keyboardist Jeff Lorber's video of the song here, or watch video of Alanis Morissette's live performance here, or listen to British folk band Lau play the song here).  Enjoy. 


This Is Denmark

I will never leave the graves playing with his heart.
Defense of mind reception, a new overcast.
Push or pull the words in the region of upper hall, approach native-born color.
And you,
not far away of long-distance hiders graves toys altruistic mind.

Surplus under a physical heart.
Scenic see-thru flowering Earth Sanitary Department, giving hearts of heaven and Earth.
Birds singing, sum long old, give acceptable multiple
optional participation.
These prices are at the heart of it.

He turned and saw around,
round and round in the vicinity,
around the blind man.

This is Denmark; see-thru flowering of physical heart.
This is Denmark; image of small, other-mental body,
an emotional partner.
Attributed, this sees this editorial re: see-thru, unread, looked-past sees.
This is the story of a clever mind to see you.

Not far away of long-distance hiders graves toys altruistic mind.
Defense of mind reception, a new overcast.
Push or pull, the words in the region of upper hall approach native-born color.
And you?
I will never leave the graves playing with his heart.
