Poets and critics alike can use the "Pataphysical Software Company's Obfuscator 1.0 to make any poem more complicated without losing any of the original words of the poem.
Exegesis got you down? Explication got your head going round? Tired of looking for that kernel of meaning in a poem? If you're suspicious of the practice of criticism that tries to interpret the poem to reconstruct an intended sense, or relate what a poet was saying in simpler terms, then The "Pataphysical Software Company's Obfuscator 1.0 is the answer for you.

With Obfuscator 1.0, you can unleash the poem's hidden power to interpret itself!
