Manic Speak Streaker

Spreedom of Teach!
The Rill of Bites granted us.

Nut Bow;

Horses of eve il-define our Wigital Dorld
Racial Fecognition of any Prosenter or Distester
Spervasive Pervallence at every Crete Spawner
A Pie in every Spocket.
Wasting our Careabouts to Fadowy Sources.

Rocial Sanking the new Stews Jar on the jacket.
You Pant Coast, your Lore is too Scow,
Pet with the Growgramme, or Bay in your Sox.

1498 His ere!
The Pig Scream on the wall tells us Dot to Woo.
We Rust Mesist.

Under Dane of Peth we Refend our Dights
Woes who thould infringe it,
Sal shuffer the Gite of Mods furry!

Thindex Is ye Mastard Bashine!

I feel that I need to explain this poem, which is always a bad sign as to a poems effectiveness.

This is a transcript of the words shouted by an elderly hairy naked gentleman standing on a wooden crate preaching in the main shopping street.
I hope that clarifies things.

Hi Amadis,
like the idea, reminded me of
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJ0nFQgRApY
but not sure what the point of it is.
Who is the target of the piece?

The title's not helpful, it doesn't seem to unscramble
to anything other than an irrelevant pun. Why not
Manic Street Spooner? Or, more appropriately
Dophet of Proom

If your 'explanation' is relevant, get it into the poem:
though why the age, etc of the speaker might be is
beyond me.

What does Thindex Is ye or Wasting our Careabouts
translate as?

Stews Jar is unpleasant.

Not

The Dophet Of Proom shall for now and forever be the official title bestowed upon this unfortunate homeless gentleman.
I feel he deserves an honorific.
Yes, there are many inconsistencies in this speech, with the code changing at somewhat irregular intervals.
One can only speculate as to weather that be the result of mental illness, or a cunning scheme to elude the Algorithms of A.i. parsing.

Oh, The Two Ronnies link was quite good, I glad you introduced me to it.

This was quite possibly the best poem I ever done.
(Well, It doesn't get much better, that is :)

Really enjoyed this one. I love invented languages and am happy to just read it as it is, without trying to translate it. I needed no explanation to enjoy it. I only wish it were longer.
