A Man Named Joyce

by Matt Schatz

“I think it’s only a matter of time before AI will
be able to beat any writer in a blind creative taste test”

(With apologies to Kilmer)

I think AI could never be
A TV writer good as me.

A guy who says, “I’m so deprest”
While dripping eel sauce on his chest;

A scribe who stares at screens all day,
And lifts his arms and screams, “Oy vey;”

A man that may in summer wear
That viral sweater from The Bear;

Something something writer’s block;
Who rents a place in Eagle Rock.

Scripts are made by fools like me,
AI can 3D print a tree.
