Love Poem

In chapter 6 of the novel Diplomatic Implausibility, there is a klingon love poem. According to the book's glossary, the poem Leskit gives Kurak "is subliterate and cannot possibly be translated into English". Since the grammar of the poem is a bit awkward, it is likely that Okrand did not vet this one and therefore it can not be considered as canon. The book says "It was probably the worst piece of peotry ever written in all of Klingon history."
