Southwest 20: (Google Sonnet 17: The Future)

In fact, the likeliest path for the future of
     user-created content is derivative works.

They were certain of the future. It was the past
     that kept changing.
The past was never over, the future had always begun.
When you cut into the present, the future leaks out.
Our roots are clearly set in the future, as
     the Arab poet Adonis wrote it.
This is beyond cool, this is the future!
Any technical architecture is about planning for
     and anticipating the future.
It makes no sense to erect ideological roadblocks
     to the miracles of the future.
If the creator of the language is perceived as
     a blocker to the future of the language there is
     obviously something wrong.

He could see into the future and admitted consulting
     imaginary mystic dwarfs.
If he cares about the future as he claims he does,
     it would mean that he would have to stop fucking around.
I will not allow gaming skills of the future to be
     inherent to the common couch potato.
The robots also have to compete against technologically
     augmented humans, whom I suspect will be the real
     force of the future.
But there is a storm blowing from Paradise, and this
     storm keeps blowing the angel backwards into the future.
In the future, we will all have jet-powered cars.
