Rich, Sour, Bittersweet

Another spin off volume of Rich and Richer arranged for the web.

Rich, Sour, Bittersweet is based on an old Chinese painting of three men tasting vinegar, the men being Confuscious, Buddha and Laozi of Confuscionism, Buddhism and Taoism respectively.

The following four poems are each of their philosophies expressed separately and then interrelated. They were written such that the first word of the parent poem is the first word of the first child poem (Confuscious), the second word of the parent poem being the first word of the second child poem (Buddha) and the third word the same for Laozi's poem. I repeated the process, generating each word of any child poem from the third following word in the parent poem.

I hope you enjoy the taste of vinegar!
