Lines Through a Old Fogy/Lines By an Old Fogy
By Anonymous and the EastWestern University Dada Cluster

The EastWestern University Dada Cluster is a society dedicated to using dictionary, grammar and translation tools to "fix" works of literature. Their work is now aided by BadTranslator.com tools.

[ Original -> Spanish -> English ]

New Version

Lines Through a Old Fogy

I am gratefully that the sun and the moon
  That so highly hangs,
The not claiming hand can extend
  AND throw it from the sky.
If they were not, I am certain however
  A burro that reforms would
Recommend to descend it,
  AND to ignite the world with gas.

Original Text

Lines By an Old Fogy

I'm thankful that the sun and moon
  Are both hung up so high,
That no presumptuous hand can stretch
  And pull them from the sky.
If they were not, I have no doubt
  But some reforming ass
Would recommend to take them down
  And light the world with gas.
