Babelfishing Poetry: "Chorax Was Silent"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Chorax Was Silent"

Hello!  And how are you today?  Bright and breezy?  Cheeky and cheerful?  Chipper?  Top-notch?  Super-duper?  Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed?  Full of sunshine?  Rarin' to go?  Just ducky?  Full of ginger?  Ready to face the day?  Hunky-dory?  In the swim? Peachy-keen?  On the ball?  Up to snuff? A-OK? Copacetic? Right on? Cooking with gas?  Spiffy?  Okey-dokey?  First-class?  Capital? Fly?  On fleek (do kids even still say that these days?)?  All of those put together?  None of the above?  No matter, because, regardless, it's time for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, get silly with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week it's Seattle artist Tomo Nakayama's "Bright And Blue" (watch video and read lyrics here).  Enjoy. 

Chorax Was Silent

Yes, the man woke up at night.
There is no smell when the world comes.
I had time to eat it
Everything is yellow and cloudy.

I am not a mineral.
You go down close,
but the child is singing,
green like a winner.

I look at an individual,
the person who has come to love us.
Look, I see what I see,
and ideas that have these ideas.

I am a persimmon.
That's why the time in many times is not enough.
Chorax was silent.

But I know
if it is not to come, I will care.
Suddenly, he is a leader of a non-partisan party.
