Robopoem takes a block of text, analyses each word, and then assembles it into couplets with (approximately) the same rhythmic characteristics. Random words are also thrown into the mix to:
achieve the desired syllable count
add rhyming pairs
mystify the reader
Robopoem will be of most use to postmodern lyricists or lazy rock bands who don't really care about the semantic content of their songs. Here is a formula to generate verses or choruses:
Count the number of beats in your melody line (every time you hit or pluck a note)
Set the syllable count dropdown to match the number of beats
Paste some text into the text input area
Hit "Poem" and wait for the robot to wake up and do it's thing
