Dragon Melodies

by Poetry Potty

The sounds of the foot
With the affairs of dragons.
Stomping out melodies
Upon an unwilling world.

Poetry Potty works by taking blobs of text and ordering them into poetic form and formatting. Initially text blobs were generated using Markov Chains that had been fed with the logs of a decades old (but still lively) IRC channel. More recently, the ouput of Poetry Potty’s previous work using Markov Chains and the continuing output of the IRC channel have been used as training data for an LSTM (Long Short Term Memory) neural network based on char-rnn by Andrej Karpathy.
