Code poem

A short code-as-poem snippet which imparts a sense of the environmentally destructive mindset that machine learning (AI) constructs. When I ran this python code - a verbatim example taken from a online tutorial which generates an image from a text prompt - I found myself wanting to buy a faster computer as my CPU got hotter, the fan ran faster, and my laptop struggled to run because of the load it was under. Imagine similar code, running millions and millions of times for all the AI-generated images that people playfully/destructively create.
