Recursive One Word Generative Poetry

Input any word. My program will turn it into another word that has the same number of phonemes. Then it will find an example of that word in use via the Wordnik API. Then it will recursively run through four bit chunks, starting from the end, modifying the last word in each line using the CMU phoneme dictionary. I got a bit carried away parsing the CMU pronouncing dictionary and this includes some functions that I didn’t wind up using, but would like to use in the future.
