Babelfishing Poetry: "Your Name Is Cool And Beautiful"


Hello!  And how are you today?  Good?  Yes?  No?  In-between?  Comme ci, comme ça?  A little iffy?  Rather not say? Keeping it a secret? It's a mystery?  Being coy about it?  Have to think about it a little longer?  Can't decide? Wanting to hedge your bets? Need to consult with someone about it? None of the above? All of the above?  I myself had a very frustrating doctor appointment this week, where in addition to being interrupted constantly, I was pressured to try an off-label medication rife with side effects (not to mention an FDA block box warning!), which may or may not even help me -- and may very well hurt me.  (I've been through that before, with the two anti-viral medication I tried 5 years ago, which caused me profoundly disabling side-effects from which I still haven't fully recovered.)  The doctor offered no other options for me.  Sigh.

Such is life, sadly.  So let's turn our attention instead to more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, kludge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Mott the Hoople's story about a lost guitar, "All The Way From Memphis" is our feature this week (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 


Your Name Is Cool And Beautiful

Enter sixteen cars bleeding into the air.
No, I'll be half-minded about the menu.
Yes, blind people saw our device.
He said the brochure was driving the car.

Well, I know Uluru. I know the moon.
Geze fairly electric.
Some stones say the stones and the rocks are the same.
This man's child is a cheeky tool.

This road is far from damage to the road.
The sun is burning cold oil.
Sleepy sleeping time, other nursing getting ridiculous guidance attention.
Meng Fi.

In the end, the heart will take out the purchase.
Your name is cool and beautiful.
So, when you go, you're no big deal.
Memphis.

Yes, the Tao in the heart is learned there
about Karen Bradford and Kichi Fang.
Stars star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star star.
Statue of Stars, Starship and Friendship.
