A good title bears recycling

The Ogre does what ogres can,
Deeds quite impossible for Man,
But one prize is beyond his reach:
The Ogre cannot master speech.

Thank you for spotting this David.

It seems that Nikiforuk takes his title from Buckminster Fuller and Leonard Cohen (maybe). I have heard of Buckminster Fuller but knew nothing of his philosophy/theory on energy. I will look again at my dog eared copy of Cohen's poems with a new perspective.
