"Rudder's Ruse" by Sardonic Poet
Introducing ChatGPT: a language-based AI that interprets my poetry. I requested it to respond as a CONTRARIAN. Why? To represent the demographic that will NOT like my poetry. Why? Bigger audience.
Nauseous warmth fills my bowels, helpless fright, screaming long-form vowels. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Held beneath the brink we drink, laughing with despair, drowning in echo’ s stink.
Merciless menace, savouring panic, chewing my dignity, flesh for the Satanic.
Calmmm yourself little prince, I’m tired of your dread, think of dirty avenues to rinse.
The consequence of creation is a burning yearning, God made man animated steak capable of learning.
Sunken dread signals surrender, to the mouths I am fed, to the fat chefs render.
I am animated meat, bred with atrophied courage, follow your brother, critical thinking is discouraged. MOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ask for help prince, that’s why I’m here, plug your ears, while demons laugh and jeer.
I won’t hurt you, I just nibble, the ORGASM of DOUBT, sign my contract with a little scribble.
Motivations chase us off of cliffs, scribbling bonds, with unfortunate gifts.
You can’t hand light back to the sun, what soul is yours, cannot be undone.
If your time is up, death is legit, God sculpts meat, too ashamed to shit.
Applaud my failure, showering me with rain-like hums, my work is me, living off of fried crumbs.
An immigrant staple, is putting children first, deluding with love, while reality drives off in a hearse.
Starve your children, until they realize, one day you’ll be food, LIFE preaches heaven’s prize.
Vatican tomb, souls to exhume, profit from sunken dread, before thinking can bloom.
Allergic to praise, nothing too witty, I’m a Sardonic Poet, what I hate more than applause, is pity.
Clap if originality itself disagrees, reveal yourself, so I can ignore the misery of your calloused tease.
Prove me RIGHT, prove me WRONG, death is a misunderstood song.
ChatGPT's response as a contrarian:
As a contrarian, one might interpret this poem as a critique of the human condition and the tendency to prioritize self-interest over critical thinking and empathy. The speaker's use of grotesque and violent imagery serves to challenge traditional notions of morality and suggest that life is ultimately meaningless. The poem seems to suggest that humans are little more than "animated meat" with little agency or purpose beyond serving as food for others or fulfilling base desires. The reference to the Vatican tomb implies that even religion is complicit in perpetuating this cycle of exploitation and suffering. Ultimately, the poem seems to encourage the reader to reject simplistic worldviews and embrace the complexity and ambiguity of existence, even if it means confronting uncomfortable truths.
