Babelfishing Poetry: "Blood Is Coming"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Blood Is Coming"

Hello all!  Thank you for dropping by again, it's so nice to see you! I hope, wherever you are in the world, you're safe and secure on this late summer day.  Now is the time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, have some fun with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's feature, from Israeli folk duo Esther & Abi Ofarim, is the calypso-influenced "Cha Cha Ballahoo" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

Blood Is Coming

Go hunting, city rickshaws.
Lady God, dear Lady,
I obey the roadside.
Blood flows there.

Bring frying pan, flat-bottomed pan, Japanese pan.
Hello dad, add the plate.
Cooking, baking, roasting and roasting.
How to make a provocateur.

Prepare the pot and give it to your husband.
Sense his hunger.
People ride in large metal buckets.
Now we'll be playing music of the music.

I would recommend something to fight:
single-eyed glasses.
However, other people have come to Japan,
and they don't go to school.

We have a new ambassador.
You have just entered the village.
My upper floor sleep is over.
The site is a whimsical custom.

Rickshaw hunting in the city of Seki.
Hello dad, add the plate.
I obey Gilgamesh.
Blood is coming.
