Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously

I am taking a Linguistics class this semester and we were talking about syntactic clues in Language.  We were given a sentence and asked what we could determine about it.  I loved the sentence.  Supposedly it is meaningless but I found it profound; poetic even.  It inspired the following.

Colorless green ideas sleep furiously
In empty beds beneath the calmly florescent gazebo
Dreaming themselves blue faceless smiles
Mindless thinkers swimmingly still
Dawn quickly awaits.
