Issue 14 · Fall 2014
Poem 21 is based on a 1986 William Barton program (in English) called “The Mad Poet,” published in Commodore Power/Play but later redone with different Spanish words by Amílcar Romaro. His Spanish version, Poema 21, was published in 1988 in the magazine K64. This is the first of two alternative sets of data given in that issue. The following are available: The original (Spanish) BASIC program, the translated (English) BASIC program, the original program as a PRG file, and the translated program as a PRG file. The PRG files can be run on Commodore 64 emulators; an in-browser emulator (VICE.js) is provided in the current publication.
