SCP-904 A Short Poem | Euclid | Cognitohazard scp


Item #: SCP-904 Object Class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures: SCP-904 should
be inscribed on an ordinary sheet of typing paper when not in active observation or study.
This paper should be secured in a secure locked non-combination vault and stored out of range
of any recording devices. SCP-904 should only be handled or directly viewed by class-D personnel
without backgrounds in literature, writing, or art. Any personnel viewing SCP-904 experiencing
hallucinations or suicidal thoughts should be removed immediately from the situation. Description: SCP-904 was discovered scratched
on a bathroom wall in the literature department of ████████ University, after
reports of unusual behavior and difficulty speaking in approximately 300 students and
staff. Mobile Task Force Eta-10 (“See No Evil”) was sent to contain it, after its viral nature
was realized, and although all three class-D personnel involved in its transport were infected
by visual contact, it was transported to Site-██ without incident. SCP-904 presents a slight memetic hazard to
all who read it, but it is only harmful to those with a specific creative-type mindset.
An infected individual can infect other individuals. Symptoms include the tendency to use end rhymes
uncontrollably, in all speech. Reading SCP-904 multiple times, or being very close to it
after reading it once, will result in the development of a more refined poetic form,
containing iambic pentameter, a more complicated poetic form, or more fitting rhymes. The infection is not permanent. Some individuals
will remain affected for up to twenty four hours, while others will shake off the infection
within ten minutes. Typically, infections caught from other individuals will be shorter
in duration than infections from the source. However, some individuals, mostly those with
backgrounds in poetry and the arts, are more adversely affected by the infection. These
individuals have a more difficult time losing the infection. In rare cases, it will not
subside, but will induce hallucinations regarding being “trapped” (in cages, coffins or otherwise),
a state of extreme depression, and the feeling that they are unable to express their thoughts
or that their body is not theirs anymore, or that they are being possessed. Often the
subject will choose to self-terminate. Researchers should use discretion when choosing who will
view SCP-904. Addendum 1: A class-D personnel was exposed
to SCP-904 and successfully infected. When asked to use a sentence ending in the word
“ninth” (a word with no rhymes in the English language), [DATA EXPUNGED].
It should be noted that while infected individuals don’t casually choose to use non-rhyming words,
they are able to and the consequences may be deadly. At the request of the cleaning
crews assigned to clean up the blood, researchers are strongly discouraged from similar experiments. Addendum 2: If this ever breaks containment,
we’re going to be facing a disaster, suicidal poets or not. –Doctor █████

  1. @1:44 is that simply ambient sound? It struck me very strongly as a female voice saying something like "right".

  2. That's not a picture of the SCP.
    What the poem really is, do not ask me.
    No one must know what was on that wall.
    For if we find out, it will destroy us all.

  3. Scp 504 interacted with this Scp. Everything told was redacted.

  4. SCP-504 definitely reacted
    but what happened was [REDACTED]
    People probably died
    Well, at least they tried.

  5. video: this infects ppl with creative backgrounds
    me: remembers im a very creative person
    me: well fuck
