Be To Prevent/Strictly Germ-proof
By Arthur Guiterman 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.

[ Original -> Korean -> Igbo -> English ]

New Version

Be To Prevent

Baby and dog sterilization bar
Bunny playing in the garden when gambling;
Consideration as they love and hate -
It does not sterilize it was sterilized.

They are a breeding ground microorganisms;
They are more than a thousand steam steamed;
They hope deported freezing cold and freezer
Permanganate wash with soap and carbonate.

Less sulfur-filled;
Life is a pair of scissors, they trimmed beard happy;
They wore rubber suit, hand-
Elect members of his band to be sterilized.

Micro caucus is a game in the garden;
They are the kind of pure iodine bath 12 times a day;
And each of their food and hygiene poured in the cup you
Puppies and baby rabbits and Prevention.

Original Text

Strictly Germ-proof

The Antiseptic Baby and the Prophylactic Pup
Were playing in the garden when the Bunny gamboled up;
They looked upon the Creature with a loathing undisguised;—
It wasn't Disinfected and it wasn't Sterilized.

They said it was a Microbe and a Hotbed of Disease;
They steamed it in a vapor of a thousand-odd degrees;
They froze it in a freezer that was cold as Banished Hope
And washed it in permanganate with carbolated soap.

In sulphurated hydrogen they steeped its wiggly ears;
They trimmed its frisky whiskers with a pair of hard-boiled shears;
They donned their rubber mittens and they took it by the hand
And elected it a member of the Fumigated Band.

There's not a Micrococcus in the garden where they play;
They bathe in pure iodoform a dozen times a day;
And each imbibes his rations from a Hygienic Cup—
The Bunny and the Baby and the Prophylactic Pup.
