Babelfishing Poetry: "Why Do You Always Run, Ball?"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Why Do You Always Run, Ball?"


Hello!  And how are you lovely bloggity people today?  Great, I hope.  Aside from being extremely nervous and anxious about the general state of the world these days, I'm doing great myself.  So let's try to soothe some of that anxiety by enjoying some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, adjust the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week we feature alt-country artist Jenny Lewis's "The Big Guns" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 


Why Do You Always Run, Ball?

Out
is a way.
Privatization have private.

Born.
Be born,
away.

The middle ground;
away.

Ha.
No, no.
Be more life.
Private behind the curve, dragged the team seen.
Great, great, great; private,
we are, but I am bloody tired of belonging.

The middle ground.
The normal private traditional.
I would have thought a ghost.

What is your job?
Why do you always run,
ball?
