    Enjoyed Huballo Hill... Trying for context... no joy.

    Yes, after viewing Disturb's "Sound of Silence" and a bit of research on the l rics and background I thought I'd take the "AI" to task

    Here's the original using the "AI":


    Whose song is that? I think I know.
    Its owner is quite happy though.
    Full of joy like a vivid rainbow,
    I watch him laugh. I cry hello.

    He gives his song a shake,
    And laughs until her belly aches.
    The only other sound's the break,
    Of distant waves and birds awake.

    The song is glittering, deep and deep,
    But he has promises to keep,
    After cake and lots of sleep.
    Sweet dreams come to him cheap.

    He rises from his gentle bed,
    With thoughts of kittens in his head,
    He eats his jam with lots of bread.
    Ready for the day ahead.


    Quite predictable as you know by now... thought I'd feed it some Eurythmics/Quiet Riot/Dio influences (mostly ignored) and was going to leave it at that, and title it "The Glittering And Deep Song", but thought what the heck, I'll try to make something of it... still nonsense, and there ya go. Could almost make something sensible out of it

    re: No context with Huballo. I just invented the word, I liked the sound of it.

    Lol! You greatly improved the "AI". But sometimes these "templates" are limiting to me. I find it easier to invent form and content.

    Gulliver and the horses

    So once Gulliver was spilled ashore
    on an island
    And a white horse knocked at his door.
    They engaged in silent conversation
    About horse and human traditions.
    When Gulliver left the island
    Many years later
    He was more of a horse,
    than a man.

    Interesting poetic analysis... found this https://www.cliffsnotes.com/literatu...the-houyhnhnms

    A Man Named Obladee

    Obladee was a man who liked boats.
    Actually anything on water that floats.
    When attempting to write a song about them
    He came up with a whale of a gem.
    He just didn't have enough notes.

    re1:Very interesting analysis. I think the Houyhnhnms were a sort of Utopia for Swift.
    re2: Didn┤t know that Obladi, oblada was an Nigerian Expression:
    https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-...f%20the%20song.

    There was a louse
    that kept house
    with a mouse
    They used to dance
    A waltz of Strauss.

    1 - interesting conjecture
    2 - me either
    poem: lol

    Bentley's Paradox

    There once was a man who liked gravity.
    He said, "See the lovely cavity!"
    You see he was allergic to gluten,
    Just like Isaac Newton,
    It made his tummy all wavity.

    and he was the jing
    of his maza.

    Very Carrollolian !

    A Man From the Ocean

    There once was a man from the ocean.
    Who once had a wonderful notion.
    He thought until things came quite surreal,
    Then got in his automobile,
    And now we have perpetual motion.

    Lol!


    There was once
    (not so very once)
    a smartphone,
    that couldn┤t find it┤s tone.

    It didn┤t feel so smart anymore
    And oh, so alone!

    It had no heart,
    Not even of stone.
    And it hadn┤t a home
    to call its own.

    Poor smartphone

    shoes

    his shoes are decrepit, holey, and dingy
    broken in to the point of appearing cringey
    after lots of sleep he's not too lazy
    to go out and peruse the second-hand store's mazy
    - he's just too stingy

    Enjoyed! Hoping your shoes are ok!

    The shoes

    There once was,
    a pair of shoes.
    When they were still new,
    They were wedded in grand style.
    They trudged on,
    side by side
    With nothing to hide.
    Time was their guide,
    It would glide,
    ever so slight,
    Day following night.

    They became very old,
    And so,
    their short tale was told.

    The Story of Palumbo/Palumba

    Palumbo, or Palumba
    was hit by a car.
    Trailing its grazed wing.

    It hid in a garage
    and got food and water
    by enchanted hands.
    "This bird is ****ting
    all over the place"
    Grumbled the keeper,
    Respecting though
    its survival strategies.

    Palumbo/Palumba stayed on
    Daily flexing its hurt wing.

    Some time later
    It perched tentatively
    On the roof of the garage.
    Next day it was feeding
    with its buddies.

    When it felt strong
    Palumbo/Palumba
    flew away.
    Just a little grey dove
    that mingled again
    with its crowd.

    Cute poem

    Book

    I so love my book,
    it is so green and scary.
    It has special hands,
    and amazing eyelashes.
    When it cuddles, I feel happy

    Ejoyed! A legit nonsensical poem!

    Onša 3 D

    I' m not a hare,
    But a jaguar,
    I can do no harm
    To anyone,
    Cos I am
    Onša 3 D
    Onša 3D.

    My body is a wonder
    of technology
    He, he, he!
    I'm not a Muppet
    Though I walk
    Like a puppet.
    I can do no harm
    To anyone,
    Cos I am
    Onša 3 D
    Onša 3D.

    Beautiful animal

    My Pet Moose - A Tanka Poem, by Anonymoose

    I so dig my moose -
    When he's perturbed and snorting
    His tulip lips curl
    And dips one rugged antler
    Trampling all those who are near
