Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is Not Good"

Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is Not Good"


Once again, 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, revise the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's song, chosen at random, is hip-hop duo OutKast's "Hey Ya" (watch video here; song begins ~1:05).  Enjoy. 


This Is Not Good

My son is not playing
because he loves me.
I know the truth about my way,
but they really want it.
But I don't see myself
separated.

Don't try to cling.
For reasons of my own,
I take no action.
This is my unimaginable desire:
Hamlet Thunder Special.
It is impossible to be respected.

Selfishness.
Undemanding pleasure.
Selfishness.
If you are afraid to die, you are sharp.
Selfishness.
Needless to say, my friend,
this is not good.
