Re: Could Data write a poetry essay? and pass his english paper 2?

He did compose a poem, one that Geordi called a "tribute to form."

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.
See, the problem is that you are using your cards to show me what cards you have, and if you can't see that this is viciously circular, then there is no point in continuing
