The Neophyte Pixel Pusher

The Neophyte Pixel Pusher Auto Poem

Earlier this week I added an automatic poem generator to my web site. This was basically a conversion of a Java program I wrote a long time ago into a Python program. In testing the program, one of the poems generated was The Neophyte Pixel Pusher:

The Neophyte Pixel Pusher
The neophyte pixel pusher is sleeping in harmony with the hyper IBM.
Boldly the pixel pusher debugs.
The IBM imaging beyond a variegated computer.

 

A few more of the poems created while I was testing out the code follow.

 

The Electric Paint
The electric paint eludes deep inside the cybernetic vinegarroon.
Impatiently the paint seeks.
The vinegarroon screams while sleeping a malicious Lucian Freud.

 

The Chaotic Internet
The chaotic Internet writes while designing the networked Pierre Bonnard.
Panting Endlessly the Internet struggles.
The Pierre Bonnard seeks beyond a computerized portrait painter.

 

The Parallel Landscape
The parallel landscape conceives far beyond the young cubist.
Carelessly the landscape attacks.
The cubist drawing within a wiry graphic designer.

 

The Solitary Artisan
The solitary artisan conceptualizing in competition with the multithreaded silicon chip.
Hesitantly the artisan computing.
The silicon chip laughs in harmony with a shadowy processor.

 

Generally the algorithm I used to create these poems generates nonsense doggerel but every once in a while it does manage to come up with a combination of words that paint a mental picture that sort of works. Frankly, the fun part of the process was in designing and coding the program and in building the word lists.
