Felis Catus
is your taxonomic nomenclature
An endothermic quadruped
carniverous by nature
Your visual, olfactory,
and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills
and natural defenses.
I find myself intrigued
by your sub-vocal 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 aid in locomotion
It often serves to illustrate
the state of your emotion
Oh Spot,
e complex levels of behavior you display
Denote 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.

Now I lay me down to bed,
Darkness won't enfold my head,
I can see by infrared,
How I hate the night.

I am the poet. Few know of the poetry books which have had the acclaim.

"The Pea is Not Urine"

Fear not.
Rows have neatness.
Mendel. Breeding. Chi square. P Need the effect size.
Eta square?
Not the urine.
Not the urn.
Carol had not died.
Mendel. Recessive trait.
The allele has the urnial.
Far stall.
Do not look ahead.
Instead have bravery.
Mendel. Or do they?
Had the pea had the pea or wisdom cakes?
More of the same.
For the prophecy.
The show is not the rainbow.
The pea is not the urine.

Mutant Love Poem

All day long I sits and stares.
Them lip!
That eye!
Those hairs!!!
My love for you cannot compare,
to them lip!
That eye!
Those hairs!!!

Her teeth are like stars.
They come out at night.
Her eyes are affectionate.
They stare at each other!
Her hair so fair draped on the back of the chair.

Oh, come to me.
Her face looks like come to me.
She reminds me of Elvis,
because she looks dead.
Her eyes shine like brass spittoons.
And her voice is music just like mating baboons.

/Not in the face.

For me to be able to tell bad human poetry from bad machine poetry I would first have to see good human poetry so I can set a baseline, sadly good human poetry doesn't seem to exist...

"Can you to tell the difference between bad human poetry and bad robot poetry?"

The difference is that bad humans write most of the best poetry, while bad robots are too busy shooting meatbags to write much poetry.

And also on the unjust fella; But

Nothing is more painful than suffering through poetry.
99.5% of poetry is awful and qualifies as torture for me.
Of all the styles I think haiku is the most tolerable, mostly because it is short and to the point.

Well, first let's define "poetry," shall we? Just because it has iambic pentameter and is vaguely profound in a meaningless way doesn't mean it's "poetry."

That human poetry set the bar pretty low for the robot.  Kind of made the whole exercise pointless.  And I say this as a failed poet.
