Word Cloud - 12/08/10

Post by bodkin » Thu Aug 12, 2010 10:11 pm

This is a word-cloud exercise. Click the link below to see the word-cloud (you will need Java working in your browser).

Study the cloud and try to find groups of words which inspire you to some sort of poem. You do not need to use every word and you can add as many extra words as you need to build the scaffolding around them.

You can also adjust the words' exact forms: run -> ran, train -> trained, horse -> horses etc.

Cloud

There is no end-date for the exercise, I will put another one up in a week or so...

Ian

p.s. Guess the source of the words (but no prize this time)

Seems like my life's invaded by Klingons
with their "can I borrow a crutch"
or hinting at the outcome of guessing
if my wallet's open for charitable functions.
I suggest that some take a voyage
while others are told to simply fuck off
back to their strange boutiques of nowt
beyond sponging off a world tainted
by those who don't sit on their arse all day.
It's become a mission of sorts
protecting the space in which I feel
the flesh of some fine examples
of civilised society, preferably female.
Occasionally a final word is required
which has to be boldly communicated
even though it's rather short "GO"


.
to anticipate touching what is unseen seems far more interesting than seeing what the hand can not touch

Man! Boldly that frontier, we went
to it, and through it, and barely--

well we knew it was there, of course
but the maps were out of date
and the exact position--

Strange... It did not occur to us to explore
we just went, performed the mission,
turned right around...

but we did sell a Hell of a lot of canned drink.

Personal Log: Ensign Isa Pratt
Star Date: 45573.85

The Captain's dead chuffed with himself
Another new life form to add to our tally.
Not exactly what you'd call civilised.
Ugly little blighters really.
but it means the enterprise has broken all records
on the exploring new frontiers front.
all this in the final year of our mission
Man! I might get to spend Christmas with the family this year.
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!
