"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.
Dishes, dishes, dishes are great, we cup your food, washers eat while plates wait.
Sure, sure, washers praise our strength, matching decorum, measured to length.
Boy oh boy, do tables turn when dishes get dirty, washer’s moods are set to burn.
“Dishes, dishes, I wish you were sleeping with the fishes, disposable platters grant us washer’s wishes.”
Ungrateful washers leave us to fraught, crusted with soggy crumbs, soapy water marinates the rot.
Wash us washers, for goodness sakes, we pile up like a pit FULL of hissing snakes.
If dishes could hiss, washers would rescue responsibility from the abyss.
Washers relieved, dishes must squeak so washers can recall, how to avoid being peeved.
ChatGPT's response as a contrarian:
As a contrarian, one might interpret this poem as advocating for the mistreatment of dishes and the disregard for the work of washers. The poem portrays a sense of entitlement and ingratitude on the part of the washers, who view the dishes as a burden and express a desire to dispose of them. The poem also suggests that the washers do not take proper care of the dishes, leaving them dirty and causing them to pile up.
A contrarian might argue that the washers should take more responsibility for their actions and treat the dishes with respect. They might suggest that the work of washers is important and should be valued, rather than dismissed as a menial task. Additionally, they might argue that the use of disposable platters is wasteful and environmentally irresponsible, and that reusable dishes should be used instead. Overall, a contrarian interpretation of this poem would reject the idea that the mistreatment of dishes and the disregard for the work of washers is acceptable.
