Tagging the classics

if there were a way to invest
long term
in promising Web technologies
i'd place a bet on IMDb keywords

because they're barely used, yet

but i foresee a great future

and one disciplined way
to accelerate their growth

might be an parallel
Internet Classic-Literature Database

that scrupulously tags
the plot twists (and cliches)
of the literary classics

allowing Polti-like plot comparisons
on a grand scale
