[Chris rummages around his ~/Lisp directory...  Yup, "parse-poetry.lisp"
is still kicking around...]

I've got one of those...  Some years ago, my little program won a rather
geeky "poetry generation" contest.  I grabbed a corpus of sample poetry
by one of those crazy "tax protestors," and the program would nicely
generate poetry looking very much like this one guy's output.

Give me 50 slogans, and the little program should be able to do the same
:-).
