Three Voices

September 13, 2012

Foreign language posts on Facebook apparently have a “see translation” link under them (is this new? because I only noticed it recently). My cousin posted something in Japanese, and I clicked the link, and the poem below is the direct result, with very little editing by me. (I was especially amused by all this because my cousin is, by profession, a translator.)

Anyway, enjoy!

And finally! (Laughs)

Now, the North Kanto is hot!
