PoetBot is an Artificially Intelligent (or not so intelligent) poet that composes mostly bad (unless you're a Vogon) poetry with a nature theme. Sometimes an interesting one slips through like:

morning breeze
black sky
the thunder has stopped

If you like really, really bad poetry, there is a separate Vogon PoetBot, but be warned, Vogon poetry is the third worst in the universe!

Added some buttons so you can choose what style of poem you want, or you can select random to generate a style at random.

LOL, I like the Vogon one better just because it sounds more stupid and makes less sense (not that the nature one made much sense either 😛). You should allow copy-pasting the poems it comes up with (I think the only way would be to use text input field with the poem as the default text).

Great idea, design, and execution. I love experimental things like this. Helps me open my mind to new ways to use Hyperpad.

I got "Sea is as cool as a dry cloud" lol😂😂😂

This is really funny. Some of the poems are really good. I'm going to steal them and pretend I'm a poet 🤣. Since you're doing a few different types of poems, why not give the user the ability to select the type? Eg. If I select haiku it only generates haikus for me.

Good idea, I'll add some selection buttons to the next update. Also one for random poems.

Nice, but it would be cool if there could be more rhyming. I understand if that's not possible though.

April 09, 2017

That's possible. Would just need to have matched sets of rhyming words to choose from and then constrain the last words of the lines you want to rhyme to be from the appropriate sets. I'll try to put together a version of that in the next update.

Just what I was thinking. Cool!

I need you're help with something, can you help me out?

April 11, 2017

Depends on what you need help with. If it's not related to this project, we should probably discuss it offline. Or if it's something that others might be interested in or could help with, post it on the forum.

April 11, 2017

Now that I think about it, it's posted on the forum already under "games you should check out that don't get enough attention" just read that and do the thing. Post freely too.

April 11, 2017

It's in general discussion.
