Oh, Mike the Engineer can build
your brand-new hip, or synth your pills.
But engineers left unfulfilled
poor Mike's creative writing skills.

“I'll never be a poet," said Amory as he finished. "I'm not enough of a sensualist really; there are only a few obvious things that I notice as primarily beautiful: women, spring evenings, music at night, the sea; I don't catch the subtle things like 'silver-snarling trumpets.' I may turn out an intellectual, but I'll never write anything but mediocre poetry.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, “This Side of Paradise"
