. Usually fail
s, and quite badly
Gelett Burgess wrote a parody of machine made poetry, which would have been created by a modified typewriter at the time.
Here it is:
Oh Philiis, "j??zVbx Aj%5 2q part,
So soon --IQ'k"jyx,-, 2-morrow,
Alas, qIQ)$ 'Vmlj=; my poor heart!
Ah--$$,%, ws 4pdv7, Qkcd, sorrow.
Fare"well,..QJmdubz$ "-,never mind,
Sweet Phylli$, "jzf%I ,-missing--
Ah me,, v$%Aw"mjx ..js$..have to find
Another g$irlx $993% to do $gzk kissing!
Automatic poetry has, luckly, advanced farther since then, but not much.
My advice is to write your own poems.
