I go mad with power

Since unlocking the secrets of the internet yesterday, I have become maddened with the power of my discoveries, and am now seeking to change poetry as we know it. Find below, for your amusement or bemusement a personally customisable limerick and a haiku, an instant T S Eliot poem, and several rhyming couplets for the price of one!

Bravissimo! I can't help feeling that there's something utterly profound about this. What, though? Therein lies the doctoral thesis.

I don't mind saying, I think it was all worth it for that couplet at the end. It's certainly less strenuous than the traditional method of writing poems (working out rhymes AND making sure it goes together coherently. This way, we all get to chuck coherence out the window!)

Well, once you know how to do it, the rest pretty much writes itself.

The most complicated part of this post was writing the limerick/s, since that actually needed to rhyme.

Those couplets didn't write themselves.

No siree.

Polka dot fedoras aren't just pulled out of a hat.

I'm merely striking a blow for polka-dotted headwear, garments which I feel have been sorely underrepresented in today's media.

Equal opportunity for hats!
