The Lust is Over

Because I know you all need another addictive time waster, one I found in a roundabout way via The Generator Blog: Language is a's Automatic Poetry Generator, which produced this masterpiece for me to ponder:

We are happy against the ground

All sinning within the mist
You breathe wanting delusions under the sky
God! The lust is over
Strangely damp above the sky
I taste arid tomb stones among the land
Word! The life is hard
We are happy against the ground
You bend red bones on the virgin
Awaken! The vision keeps going
unafraid fighting back
never meeting
the next life waiting
At how many harbours
my father
look for landmarks
and find road-signs.

If you scroll down to the bottom, you'll find links to other interesting writing gizmos on the site, like the Magnetic Poetry Kits you can play with online (the ee cummings one is neat) and the Text Collage Generator (which seemed to be collaging only four emotions -- happy, depressed, angry and calm -- while I fiddled with it.)

All I want to know is, if the lust is over, then why are we happy against the ground? Is it covered in M&Ms?


  1. Okay, that was a WTF moment.

    It's the 'strangely damp' and the tasting of 'arid tombstones' that weirded me out.

    As long as there's chocolate on the ground, yeah, I guess we would be happy.

  2. Ooooh, new toy! I must play with that one. And M&Ms make me happy, so I vote for that interpretation. *g*

  3. Hmmmm... okay, that's bit weird.

    And if people have been lusting on the ground, I don't want M&Ms on it. I'd rather them in a bag.


  4. ROFLMAO. ahhh the M&M's. That must be the reason for being happy against the ground. Otherwise, I'd be a bit bummed if the lust was over. *huge grin*

  5. Ha! I was thinking butterscotch hard candies, but good on ya!

    This sounds fun I'm going to go check it out.

    P.S. I know that if the ground was covered in M&M's than I'de be happy on the ground. Ten second rule!


  7. I've tried both the poem generator and the magnetic poetry kits, and both were fun. Thanks for finding them for us. Hope you had a great weekend.
    Plain or peanut M&Ms? :)
