This paper you’ve given to me
Is as far from the truth as can be.
It has artful syntax,
But meaning it lacks:
Was it written by GPT-3?
My brother’s fave dialogue’s Phædo
And his fave Star Wars character’s Greedo.
Now that’s pretty bad,
But there’s worse to be said:
He only speaks Klingon and Ido.
There once was a thinker contrarian
Who claimed that what we call Sumerian
Was a programming language
For old flood control tankage
With a manual writ’n in Bulgarian.
I wish I had known Ludoviko
And considered him mia amiko.
Though he went with Germanic
For knabo, no panic;
He’s still a most excellent chico.
If someone thinks colourless green
Ideas sleep furiously then
There’s no point engaging
As they’ll answer, raging,
“But what can you possibly mean?”
—Bertha the Cake Cuddler
The accusative -n termination
Is a neat little piece of creation:
A regular, neat
Which needs little to no explanation.
—Sam ’n’ Hoff
