Oulipost #24: Homosyntaxism

The gun is to
dramatically
believe
the congregation of violence
that
strengthened people
intensified bars
pushed in members
hailed victory and
disappointed confiscation.

But it would
arm
a house of worship
in the
guns of restrictions
who have been
decried
to forbid
checkpoints
absolute
and relax
with rampages
full of
protection.

The prompt:
mosyntaxism is a method of translation that preserves only the syntactic order of the original words. To give a rudimentary example, if N=noun, V=verb and A=adjective, the outline NVA could yield solutions such as “The day turned cold,” “Violets are blue,” “An Oulipian! Be wary!”)

Option 1: Choose a sentence from your newspaper source text and write as many homosyntaxisms as possible based on that same variation.

Option 2: Complete a homosyntaxism of an entire paragraph or article found in your text.
