Alphabet Poem

This poem, twenty six words and twenty six lines, uses one word for each letter of the alphabet. I came up with these words by typing in several letters semi-indiscriminately following the first. In most cases, I actively attempted to add in vowels to these letter mixtures. From these letters, I chose from spell checking options to decide which word to use. The first (“Original”) has these lines in alphabetical order, while the second (“Derivative”) scrambles these lines. Because I wanted the second to reflect as little personal interpretation as possible, I opted to use a line randomizing engine found here. I made some aesthetic changes, removing the numbered points at each line, but otherwise made no changes.
