Babelfishing Poetry: "You Have Hidden Madness"

Babelfishing Poetry: "You Have Hidden Madness"

OK, boys and girls, ready or not, it's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, experiment with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's feature, chosen at random, is the Beatles' poignant "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" (listen to song here.)  Enjoy. 

You Have Hidden Madness

And here, until the hand on my head,
wall there turned.
I know; please refer to the bug.
Two little feet have touched.

And people around the world
every day and all,
I am removing them to laugh.
They said I've heard.

How can I even see?
I will never be able to operate.
Listening to them, I saw them.
In Manchuria, the blind man won.

What he said to me:
Where is the Tao of love?
We will collect all the jokes.
Let me see the Housing Authority.

Hey you, you have hidden madness.
