A great king captured by the hands of a young manNot being the world's best interpreter of Old Nost, I asked another question: "Huh?"
Will be found in the temple of the Vestals
Beaucaire Arles will retain the hostages
Nimes, Toulouse perish in water, the market to collapse
Garden of the world near the new cityI began to feel a bit, well, frustrated with my intellectual capabilities -- capabilities the Lovecraft Engine labelled "the rigid, anthropoid yammer".
Over the walls to throw ashes, lime chalk and dust
To prepare for a journey torments the first offspring
When the dead will come out of their graves
Finally, I put the first quatrain into a translator, and all was made clear:
The Future of Literature
as predicted by Nostradamus
and translated by an algorithm
A nincompoop king captured by insolent bullethole of tee-totaler womany man
Will be found worthless insolent busdrivers of insolent Vestals
Beaucaire Arles will retain insolent hostages
Nimes, Toulouse perish worthless happy-flapjacks, insolent market to collapse
