Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

In the heat of the night

Prisoner of my dreams
In the North, a prisoner of darkness
Ravishing children in perilous times
Enter the underworld
My life fades, my visions dim

I retired to a towering mountain
Dein Vater ist verschollen
Centuries of fighting
Wistful temptress
When the yellow dies under the velvet thoughts

Distant is the time
Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Sprinkled by the trappings
first day in an unknown place
Since I was born they have kept me down

Midwinter's eve falls hard upon the tyrant throne
The arrogance in the bitter sweet
Before we could talk we were singing
Everything they do and say
Upon by birth came close to death


...don't think I'll win any poetry awards...
...perhaps I should limit the shuffle to English-vocals bands...
...who are actually somewhat proficient in English...

Oh, but I like it. Although I only get the English bits. :)
That last stanza is especially effective.
