Oh yes! But then imagine all the poems with an implicit __DATA__ at the beginning.

    Like Ode to Spot?

    Felis catus 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 aid in locomotion,
    It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.
    Oh Spot, the complex levels of behavior 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.

    I'd rather he just kept to scanning for life forms.
