Ode to Spot

     Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
     an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?
     Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses
     contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

     I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
     a singular development of cat communications
     that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
     for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

     A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
     you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
     And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,
     it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

     O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display
     connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
     And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
     I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

         o Data, "Schisms"

I love how the poem is technically perfect, but just manages to sound wrong. I rather like it, and I usually find poetry pretensious rubbish :O

yes.. you are right

to write something so tech and yet so wrong and to be believable is very difficult

i would like to know who wrote that

Same here, it's probably somewhere on the 'fun facts' about that episode, on wiki/memoryalpha, or IMDb.

It wouldn't surprise me that Brent wrote it himself, he seems like that kind of genius.

He looks like a genius, though I have no idea how smart he actually is.
