Kuyruklu Şiir Tailed poem

Uyuşamayız sevgilim, yollarımız ayrı;
Sen ciğercinin kedisi ben sokak kedisi.
Senin yiyeceğin kalaylı kapta
Benimki aslan ağzında.
Sen aşk rüyası görürsün ben kemik.
Ama seninki de kolay değil, kardeşim;
Kolay değil hani,
Böyle kuyruk sallamak Tanrının günü.

We will never be able to get along, dear, our roads are separated
You are the cat of a liverbutcher, I am an alleycat
Your food is served on a tin plate
Mine in the mouth of a lion.
You dream of love, I of a bone
But it's not easy for you either, mate
No its not so easy
To wave your tail each god damn day!
