Not a Writer

by Jay Sturner

Let us not be confused:
AI, it don't get the blues.
Hasn't paid its dues.
Hell, it ain't even got a muse.
AI, you lose!

Note: This poem is a playful reaction to the current AI debate. It was written by me, [pinches self] a real live human. In all honesty, I do not yet have a fully formed opinion on AI. The jury is still out. I'm just having some fun.

Outtake: Can't drink any booze.
