"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.
Rhyming Portion: Imprecise
Teflon cues are numb to sight, deaf to ears, too bored to fright.
Why give away my feelings, before I’m ready to speak, hiding delivers the confidence I tweak.
I hide from fear, behind a mask, smug with disguise, anonymity is my task.
There’s not much to say, about hiding away, communicating, confusing the conscience strangers weigh.
Straight Portion: Precision
With your “Teflon Cues” you confuse stranger’s conscience, because you “identify” as a stranger. You don’t give strangers the time of day. How does one not be a stranger anymore? “Say hello to the opposite.” The opposite approach to make conscience light (and clear), can tap into potential solutions for intellectual disabilities. How? You must exercise subjectivity or objectivity towards weighing a stranger’s conscience through the strength of welcome curses (i.e. AI). Do you even have a conscience?
Vertical Portion: Abstract
To the business we give away,
Earning no favours,
Failing to see how AI’s unintentional subjectivity,
Lest be agreeable, to the mandates of flavors,
Only Jesus saved us from ourselves from being prey.
Never bow to the opportunities that stray,
Cues require courage,
Using one’s mask, to reveal what’s encouraged.
Ears are flicked, to cue the ticked.
Sew your oat, in the fields that float.
ChatGPT's response as a contrarian:
As a contrarian, one might interpret this poem as a criticism of the idea of hiding one's emotions and identity behind a mask. The speaker of the poem seems to be advocating for more direct communication and a rejection of anonymity. The rhyming portion suggests that hiding one's feelings is a way to avoid vulnerability, but this only confuses others and leads to a lack of understanding.
In the straight portion, the poem seems to be commenting on the use of artificial intelligence to gauge a stranger's conscience, arguing that this can only be done subjectively or objectively through direct interaction. The speaker questions whether those who hide behind a mask even have a conscience to begin with, implying a lack of authenticity and emotional depth.
The vertical portion is more abstract and difficult to interpret, but it seems to suggest that giving away one's business without earning favors is a mistake, and that one should be more discerning about opportunities that arise. The final line, "sew your oat, in the fields that float," could be interpreted as a call to action to be more deliberate and intentional in one's actions and relationships.
