Babelfishing Poetry: "As Japanese Neighbours"

Babelfishing Poetry: "As Japanese Neighbours"

Hello, how are you?  How was your week?  I have not had a good week.  I hope yours was much better than mine.  So let's move on to more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, goof around with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

English alt-rock band Ned's Atomic Dustbin brings us this week's feature, "Happy" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

As Japanese Neighbours

Sometimes I can't believe it.
The heart of Klingon
was unreasonable then.

Vehicle gastronomy.
Come on; come with me.
The assistant dreaming your hand.
Come; follow Herbalife.

As Japanese neighbours,
you can hear it.
But that doesn't happen.
Let's say it's a word.

you will hear.

What is home?
It's poetry,
my itinerary,
your forehead.
