Ode To Spot

I just thought this one was cool and I had to put it up.  I’m a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Data is my favorite character in the series.

Ode To Spot

by Mr. Data (Brent Spiner)
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Episode entitled “Schizm”

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.
