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

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.

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