Babelfishing Poetry: "Seneca Cannot Be Too Heavy"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Seneca Cannot Be Too Heavy"

Hello all!  Thank you for dropping by again, it's so nice to see you! I hope, wherever you are, you've been able to enjoy some lovely Spring weather.  It's time now 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 feature is New Wave band Ultravox's lush and haunting reflection on a lost romance, "Vienna" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

Seneca Cannot Be Too Heavy

A sharp cold flow.
The windows were designed by ice.

Potash was discovered
in the dark.

So what?  Passionate?
It was my voice.
It will be up to you.
He thought I should.

Unlimited music production: Seneca cannot be too heavy.
The story of zzicato and Asian news.

Beautiful rhythm,
take the difference between the dark green night,
despite all the cold.

Heaven and Earth, the heart of arms' warmth, and cold grey

Photo sowacho.
I mean to me.
But he didn't do it for me.

Well done, Vienna.
