Building a Poetry Camera

Inspired by the official Poetry Camera -- and challenged by my brother -- I decided to make a poetry camera of my own, using a Beepy keyboard/screen on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with a Gen 3 Pi Camera.  No custom case, nor printer, but it works just fine printing its poems to the screen.  My friends love it!

If you've got a working Pi with a camera, here's my script.  The README file has all the details on what you need to add to your Raspberry Pi base OS and how to run the script.  Have fun!
