Written on the interior of the entity is the name ‘Maxwell Leer.’ There are several poems contained within the object though none contain subjects prevalent within that time. All of the poems in questions are all couplets which rhyme. One entry in the book appears to break this format with a note from the author, who claims to be one of several gentries. (See Book Entries.)
Whenever a person is communicating any detail pertaining to SCP-XXXX they begin to rhyme. They will begin to gain SCP-XXXX’s anomalous properties over time. After a time with the rhyme victims, SCP-XXXX-1 referred to once the transformation is done, will begin to add in more and no longer will their speech be a bore. When a person talks of any detail relating to an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 they will also rhyme, is that not fun?
