Secret Poetry Cipher

Good Morning, I was reading the daily blues this morning, while enjoying a cup of Sumatra one source coffee when I came upon this headline on news.

Infamous Zodiac Killer Cipher Solved After Five Decades

The Zodiac Killer’s “340 Cipher” has been solved by codebreakers 51 years after it was sent to the San Francisco Chronicle, the FBI has confirmed.

Infamous Zodiac Killer Cipher Solved After Five Decades | CBR

I read the article.  I then had a cup of Espresso and thought to myself.  I could write a poetic cipher.

So, I did.  To much time on my hand. Probably, but being retired and the fact that I love learning new things I decided to try. I learned several things along the way.  And that’s the point for me.  It keeps me young.  Learning, growing, and living life on Life’s terms.  What did I learn you ask.  Be right back got to get another cup of Joe.  (See previous blog entry) Home | Stream of Consciousness | Random Thoughts & Writings (purplehayes58.com)  See I told you everything is connected.

Don’t believe me?  I’ll show you.  Just keep reading please.  I know you are hooked.  Please try to be patient. I’m having trouble waking up this morning. I need more coffee.  Think I’ll try the Italian blend next.

The Caesar cipher is named after Julius Caesar, who, according to Suetonius, used it with a shift of three (A becoming D when encrypting, and D becoming A when decrypting) to protect messages of military significance. While Caesar’s was the first recorded use of this scheme, other substitution ciphers are known to have been used earlier. Caesar cipher – Wikipedia

How cool is that? 

Today is the twelfth day of the twelfth month of twenty, twenty. The twelfth of never maybe?  Just kidding.  That’s first thing I learned.

The Roman number system was very cumbersome because there was no concept of zero (or empty space). The concept of zero (which was also called “cipher”), lead to cipher meaning concealment of clear messages or encryption. Cipher – Wikipedia

Of all the gall.  Concealment of secrets.  Sorry.  My mind  just work’s that way.

What did Caesar do in Gaul?

Caesar in Gaul Caesar was appointed governor of the vast region of Gaul (north-central Europe) in 58 B.C., where he commanded a large army. During the subsequent Gallic Wars, Caesar conducted a series of brilliant campaigns to conquer and stabilize the region, earning a reputation as a formidable and ruthless military leader.

Julius Caesar – Play, Quotes & Death – HISTORY

Let’s see. 58 B.C.  I was born in 58 but not B.C. I’m not that old. Close you say.  And then depression set in.  Not really but I did get sidetracked a bit.  Dang, my mind is so sublime.

Today is 12/12/2020. And I didn’t even think of that before I started working it out the cipher in my mind. That sent me down another rabbit hole. Because if you add that up it’s seven.  They called it 340 cipher. Three plus four equal seven. Seven and seven equal 14 when added together equals five.  Then I thought about my horoscope. I’m a Capricorn so here’s it.

Horoscope for Capricorn

There is some probability you’ll want to escape from reality today. You are not anxious to face a situation which demands that you commit yourself. Is this because you are afraid you may lack the ability to assume this new responsibility? Yet this is an honest-to-goodness chance to fulfill your dreams of success. There can be no question of evading it!

There’s a smart ass in every crowd.  The people who know me just pointed.  No matter.  That’s just the way it is.  So, I think to myself.  I’m not avoiding anything today that I know of. I’m just going to watch college football on this rainy day and chill. But it’s early,  I couldn’t avoid the challenge anymore. Because I sure would like to fulfill my dreams.  Lol It must have been the Java.

Let’s see, where was I?  I remember.  I was in today.  December 12th.  Gotcha!  Are you sure?

October 41582 — Julius Caesar famously came, saw and conquered and was a brilliant Roman general. But he wasn’t very good at sums. And the calendar that he devised in 46 BC – named the Julian calendar in his honor – was flawed, even though it was to last for 1,600 years. Gregory Conquers Julius Caesar – On This Day

When it comes to calendars, small errors can add up over time. The Julian calendar—the prevalent calendar in the Christian world for the first millennium CE and part of the second millennium—was an improvement over the Roman republican calendar that it replaced, but it was 11 minutes and 14 seconds longer than the tropical year (the time it takes the Sun to return to the same position, as seen from Earth). The result was that the calendar drifted about one day for every 314 years. Ten Days That Vanished: The Switch to the Gregorian Calendar | Britannica.

I’m not so sure anymore.  I hope they fixed that. Close enough so I’m not going to worry about it today. But the thing is how did I get here?  I know.  I was going to write a cipher poem.  And I keep finding all these anomalies.

A CONSPIRACY theorist claims that the ancient Mayan civilization has predicted that the world will end this week.

No more coffee for you.  I think you need to take a chill pill and write the damn poem.  No, I’m having fun.  Do you think Caesar did another cipher? 

What year is it according to the Mayan calendar?

Before the Gregorian calendar that we used today was introduced in 1582, people used different kinds of calendars to keep track of the date, including the Mayan and Julian calendar.

The Gregorian calendar was created to reflect the time that it takes for the Earth to orbit the Sun.

However, 11 days of time were said to be lost in civilization’s shift from using the Gregorian calendar to the Julian calendar. Over time, the lost days have accumulated, and conspiracists claimed that we should actually be in the year 2012, not 2020.

What did the Mayans predict?

The Mayans prophesied that the world would come to an end on December 21, 2012.

Scientist and Fulbright Scholar Paolo Tagaloguin fed into the conspiracy theory on Twitter, posting “following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012.”

“The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days.

“For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years.”

By Tagaloguin’s calculations, Earth will be destroyed on June 21, 2020.

What has the Mayan calendar predicted about the end of the world? – The Sun

Then I found this little tidbit on the same page.

1408 Order of the Dragon: The Order of the Dragon was first created on December 12, 1408 by Emperor Sigismund, then King of Hungary, and his wife Queen Barbara of Celje following the battle for possession of Bosnia.

The Order of the Dragon (LatinSocietas Draconistarum, literally “Society of the Dragonists” and “Order of the Dragon” respectively) was a monarchical chivalric order for selected higher nobility and monarchs,[1] founded in 1408 by Sigismund of Luxembourg, who was then King of Hungary (r. 1387–1437) and later became Holy Roman Emperor (r. 1433–1437). It was fashioned after the military orders of the Crusades, requiring its initiates to defend the cross and fight the enemies of Christianity, particularly the Ottoman Empire. Order of the Dragon – Wikipedia

Where am I going with all this?  When I started I just intended to write a cipher poem.  And after I read the article about the cipher being solved that is what I did.  So the poem was written already before I made the rest of these discoveries.  Chew on that little tidbit.

Okay, that’s it no more coffee or wiki for you.  I’m going to watch football Caesar. I hope your cipher is not to blame.  We have nine more days.  It’s the little things Rog.  Enjoy life without strife. I will but I’ve already written that one too.

I hope you enjoy.  I won’t post the answer in case some wants to decipher my cipher. Have fun!  Live a little dream and try not to scream….

Secret Poetry Cipher

I created a cipher.

To die for.

But in skipped no one.

My encipherment was read by none.

So, I joined a club.

And after the game we went to a pub.

I had beer and a Caesars salad.

And shared my key. That’s invalid.

You could hear the shout.

What the hell is that about.

But my friends warning.

Put me in morning.

I went home Will Robinson.

And married Mrs. Robinson.

Ironic that I would marry a woman with that same name.

My cipher is not to blame.

Are you too old to drink?

No. But now I stop and think.

This Beam will make you be-bop.

How about the time in college. Let’s see 14 degrees.

Eight inches of snow on the ground.

 Passed out in a 68 Camaro.  Rather narrow.

Someone found me in the passenger seat.

All doors wide open and windows down.

I must have looked like a clown. 

My favorite song blaring, I’m as Cold as Ice.

Or the little hiccup with five guys. 

One night leaving some dive.

They were high. But I was higher.

Ten foot tall and bulletproof sky higher.

I won’t be a liar. 

I can tell you there five beat my ten.  It was a sin.

Go have some fun you young pup.

Pop will stay and be-bop a cup of warm thoughts.

And here wear the jacket, it’s getting cold tonight.

Good Morning Love

I can’t tell you why.

Sometimes my vibration is high.

Why sometimes I cry.

But right now, I must feel like Frey.

As the morning peeks around the corner.

The glint of the sun stretches to reach.

A lost spirit of the forgotten.

To awaken the ones that wait to run.

My heart was once lost.

On a sinking ship.

The ship had no compass.

And as my spirited soul drifted.

The veil was suddenly lifted.

Not to what I once searched.

But of a world of wonder and hope.

And in the end.

There was no end only hope.

Hope like a star.

Billions of stars in the sky.

And my childlike wonder returned.

My wonder pretended.

That the stars in the sky,

Flew to you and you and you.

And all that was left was love.

Most of my life I made a career of batting 1.000.

At fucking things up i was astounding.

I’m sure I’m a shoe in for the hall of fame.

But I feel not one ounce of shame.

Some may say it was my pride.

Others say you had too much to hide.

In the grand scheme it doesn’t matter.

Because most of the time I was mad as a hatter.

And I’m still on the loose.

You might even add I was a dumb thing.

Alas I was good at something.
