This is really a simple book,
But the logographers have been changed
By randomly dipping in to a didapper.

If it makes any Tartar then it is an oaf.

And although you say you love me
And I say I love you,
We won't give each other thesauruses
Because we have bad lignaloes.

So what will we do:
I'll give you a den instead
smelling as sweet as a mistress,
and you give me a posteen
and I'll listen until the snoot.
Don't worry if you don't get this. There is nothing to get.
If you want to have a go at this yourself: what you do is write a simple poem that actually makes sense, and then take out all the nouns and replace them with nouns selected at random from a dictionary or other book.

'smelling as sweet as a mistress', what a great line :)

Love the idea behind this, might have to give it a go myself at some point.

I don't remember writing that line! But it sounds good to me now.
I would enjoy seeing someone else doing this!

The men in white coats are on their way.
Seriously though: it is interesting how some of it did make a bit of sense and several of the replacement words were connected to 'words' in general, such as 'book'.

One can make a strange sort of sense out of it if one tries.
