In this instance, Data was doing a poetry recital of his own works (and boring everyone in his audience silly). Before his last poem--by way of introduction--he said that, in the tradition of John Keats and --some other made-up poet who lived in the 22nd century--he had composed an Ode. In this case, it was an Ode to his cat, Spot. Ok, the poem was hillarious. Data referred to Spot using every scientific term imaginable and recited the poem in the most unassuming dead-pan, it was a great performance! (Keats, who I have read from his contemporaries read his own poems in just as dull and monotonous way as Data) would have been pleased!
