But anyway, I have been playing with a poem generator. The link is HERE if you want to try it yourself. It is fairly straightforward, in terms of using it. It literally just generates random poems, and some of them are very funny. I'm going to test each setting and theme and see how the poems turn out. The funniest ones I will share.
The first one is a Nonnet. The first line has nine syllables and on syllable is taken away each time. This one is sort of random.
truck stops in the rust belt brace the earth
the shallow birds of paradise
his false shadow, painted skin
catharsis of water
tar black feather ball
the war tattoo
This next one sounds like a really creepy halloween story.
jack o'lanterns burn
a nightjar in a tree screams
engines left to rot
trapped in the constellations
time claims its victory now
This one sounds like someone chasing a wild turkey. It almost makes sense.
she will tumble
This one is just funny. That last line!
the slow brown river flows on
she chases her tail
To me, this one is kind of sad. It's a haiku.
wide flat dusty road
the dead and green leaves clutter
Is this one a story of a war? I especially like the last line. I can see a story in this.
if she falls
scraps of blue paper
checked shirts, red necks, shotguns
grey hide in the undergrowth
found in the broken pulse of time
Wow. There are probably tons of combinations I haven't tried yet, so go try it out for yourself. What do you think of the last one, or the rest for that matter?
