       The Ravings of an Eedjit (Poem No.1) (Based on Ozymandias by Percy Shelley)   

       I met a surfer from a half-baked site who said: One croissant and a pile of bones Stand by my idea.   

       And beneath, in harsh anno’s, half sunk, my shattered posting lies, whose prose And spelling poor, and mix of many tense Tell that its author was not well read. Which yet survive, writ on the world wide web,   

       By pedants mocked and newbies shred; And on my posting these words appear:   

       “We should use nanobots, and GM tech; Why can’t we all just learn to share?”   

       Nothing beside remains. Round the decay of that vast WIBNI, heated and terse,   

       The flames stretch down the page.

       Well Baked! (Also based on Ozymandias by Percy Shelley)   

       I met a baker from a far off land who said—“Speed bumps like custard soft, my dreams of wealth, and great acclaim.”   

       Shattered though with posts of fury. Sarcastic cold like cutting blades tell this baker well what came before. For on those annos these words appear:   

       "THIS IS WELL BAKED! LOOK UPON THESE LINKS AND DESPAIR!"   

       Nothing but the bones remain, of that colossal dream. Bun-less and barren, into the vast and endless history files. It fades into time.

       There is a halfbakery: poetry category (link) but I'll just drop this here for your pleasure:-

Whose idea this? I think I know.
It's point emerges awful slow;
I try to read until the end
But concentration's not my friend.

Science buzzwords used within
But actual science seems quite thin.
No expert I, so lose my track,
And skip the rest to read it back.

So many syllables to scan
But I'll get through it if I can.
Attention wanders, meaning lost.
I find I channel Robert Frost.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

       That's some Russian poet right? And sleep means die?   

       That's me trying to be a fancy lad who knows something about poetry. I don't, I just heard the Ozymandias thing from the TV show Breaking Bad and liked it.   

       If there's already a category this is probably at least a bit toasted if not totally baked. That being said, on the off chance that other's aren't familiar with the poem we both "modified" here it is:

       Ozymandias by Percy Shelley   

       I met a traveller from an antique land, Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal, these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

       "That's some Russian poet right?" No, that's Robert Frost.   

       "And sleep means die?" That's how I have always read it.

       Well, got it half right anyway.
