Gor’d made affence

May 8, 2012

OMFG… I haven’t posted for 2 weeks… and I almost missed a third! I’ve… I’ve broken my vows, turned my back on my duties, scorned that which is most dear. What was I thinking?!? I… I was sick! I was writing! I was trying to avoid unemployment! I was travelling! No… NO! There is no excuse….

No forgiveness! No hope of redemption! ALAS!

   I have gone 
here 
      and there and 
          strangelyt I have look'd on 
truth
Askance and strangelywn thoughts, sold cheap what 
       is most dear,
Made old 
cheap what 
      I have 
gone here 
and 
strangely
     Most 
          dear

Made my self a 
motley to thoughts, sold 
cheap what I have look'd of 
         affences

    Welcome, sinner! I too have strayed from the weekly posting path. I have been living the the cave of my own regrets, and drinking of only the tears of my shame which drip from the stalactites. It will be great to have some company.

    Verily, true and honest efforts in Algorithmick Poesy are the only shovels with which we will escape from these soul-avalanch’d tunnels.

    Maybe we can cheer ourselves up by playing Adam Parrish’s recently-released lexcavator word game!

    His recent disclosure that “lexcavator uses a markov chain algorithm to generate the board” gives me the perfect rationale for mentioning it here. Check it out!
