Мы переводим
А что? Стихи? Или же
Много бумаги?

Haiku - double entendre #1

Translate we just may,
Yet what do we convey - thoughts?
Or pages fouled lay?
Merci !

This is a poetic translation - deviations from the meaning of the original are present (extra words, extra or omitted information, substituted concepts).

Feedback is appreciated. If you like or dislike something, leave a note...
The objective is to further human understanding so my feeble attempts are not copyrighted.

To convey pun in a translation - mission impossible, but this is an outstanding translation, DD. Besides being poetic it is triply rhymed!
The next one is a real double entendre, but you asked me not to waste my dirty mind.

Actually in this case,
Convey = transport or carry to a place, plays the pun

And if you wish to remain friends, please refrain from calling me double-D...😗

You know what - Brava. Unconditionally. I was too hung on "переводим" pun, so I totally missed it. What makes it even more delicious
is that I was saying "conveying pun is impossible" while you were playing pun on "convey".

> And if you wish to remain friends,
Oh, ultimatums. You know me well enough by now to realize what my expected reaction to an ultimatum would be.

Ty. Ty.
Ref reaction. I expect you’d weigh the options and choose the path you prefer.
