Because found poetry is one way of interacting with the news

Malware

Hoping to thwart a sophisticated system
The F.B.I. made an urgent request:
Turn it off.
The malware is capable of
Blocking, collecting, disabling
A global network.
Hundreds are already under control.

To reboot
The Department received permission
To seize the domain,
Command the domain,
Steal sensitive information,
And carry out disruptive Justice.

Stolen circumstances,
Global reach—
The potential for thousands of victims worldwide.

Found poetry from “F.B.I.’s Urgent Request: Reboot Your Router to Stop Russia-Linked Malware,” The New York Times, May 27, 2018
