Babelfishing Poetry: "Essential Conscientrations, Foul And Wretched"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Essential Conscientrations, Foul And Wretched"

Hello!  Another Friday, here at last!  (You may engage in a ceremonial whoop-de-doo at this time, according to your preference.)  And so it is 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 it's 14th Century composer Guillaume de Machaut's rondeau "Ma fin est mon commencement" ("My end is my beginning") (read lyrics (by clicking Show More and scrolling down) and listen to the song here).  Enjoy. 

Essential Conscientrations, Foul And Wretched

Currently I need to change the railway line.
I am honored to be able to supervise my suggestions.

If you like, sing chanting song, Japanese song.
Now I want to change the route.

Today, they will make some essential conscientrations,
foul and wretched.

Now I will change my course.
I am honored to monitor my advice.
