A couple of silly notes before you descend into the literary abyss:

1) The pieces the Generator creates are considered copyrighted, sort of, because the words contained within it were written by someone else. This means that while you're free to post the poem on your own site, you can't take the poem and submit it to a publisher. One, it's plagiarism. Two, it's ridiculous, because the Generator creates BAD gothic poetry.

2) Also, if you do post it on your site, it's dishonest to put it there and give the impression that you "wrote it." Gothic weasels will come and eat up all your breakfast cereal if you do.
