All Star but in Aramaic, then translated back to English (credit: Isaac Gantwerk Mayer)

There was one who said unto me that the universe was going to cause me to tremble,
That I am not the sharpest cutting implement in the storehouse.
She had the appearance unto me as a stupid one,
With her finger and her thumb
In the frame of a Greek gamma upon her forehead.

Behold, the years begin coming, and do not cease from coming.
Fed unto the axioms, and I fell upon the earth and ran.
It was not acceptable if not to live for the sake of pleasurable things.
Your brain increases its wisdom but your heart increases its stupidity.

A great amount to do, a great amount to see,
Therefore, there is no difficult problem if we take the streets of the backside.
You will not know if you do not go.
You will not shine if you do not glow.

Behold currently! You are entirely a star child!
Begin your power! Go laugh!
Behold currently! You are a master of the music!
Begin your singing! Acquire your wages!
All that sparkles is gold!
Comets alone shatter the frame!

@erinbee I love all of this but I want to stitch “It was not acceptable if not to live for the sake of pleasurable things” onto a sampler

@erinbee This is possibly the greatest thing I've seen all day

@Mainebot Behold currently! It absolutely made my morning.

@erinbee I’m not sure לי really needs to be translated into “unto me” instead of “to me” but it’s still quite funny.

@erinbee "Behold, the years begin coming, and do not cease from coming.
Fed unto the axioms, and I fell upon the earth and ran." is fucking incredible omg
