Rhino Beetle Infested Coconut Trees

“Rhino Beetle Infested Coconut Trees”

(After Radiohead) (With Translations)

by Michael Lujan Bevacqua

 

Tenhos i tano’ på’go’

I asu hulo’ i lago’

Manlamas i trongkon niyok siha

 

Manlaolaolao i trongko siha

Mambaibaila gi guaifi-ta

Ya katbon Chaife i setbe-ña

 

Tumånges gui’

Tumånges yu’

I nina’i

Lastima gui’

 

Tinifok betde kalulot

Kimåson, påguan yan taikulot

Paladan siha mayililok

 

Hafa eståba i lina’la’

På’go mina’la’et gi hila’

Lao ti kannu’on dinagi siha

 

Tumånges gui’

Tumånges yu’

Esta taibali

Ti ta li’e’

 

I gefes i tano’-mu

Ha boyok i isao-mu

Kao un hungok i kasao-ña?

 

Tumaohan i guafi-ña

Inigong-ña, kao un komprende?

Taiåmot i tinaigue-ña

 

Tumånges gui’

Tumånges yu’

Ta sedi gui’

Ti ta adadahi

 

Anggen manli’e’ hao, hafa un cho’cho’gue?

If you can see, what are you doing?

Anggen mañiente hao, hafa un kekegoggue?

If you can feel, what are you trying to save?
