Abstract Decorative Poem

I come across a lot of paintings like this poem; all prettiness without any meaning. Writing these is easy!

Abstract Decorative Poem

Soliloquy swineherd elbow wombat.
Petalliform stifle slimy strife.
Angle Fellini endorphin and slap.
Swaggering shambling pellucid and sap.

The use of "and" is more as a syllable modifier than to convey meaning, but in that case why not use "an"? Perhaps to be truly abstract and decorative the poem must be inherently pretty sounding; but that is all. As in abstract painting it's probably not possible to remove all meaning, but like that poem such paintings are largely meaningless.
