Just looking at the news – how you do and I suppose this is what they call ‘A Found Poem’

Holiday of a lifetime

Let’s all go on a Costa-lot-a Cruise.
If a fire starts or
if she lists,
the crews
know just what to do.

Where’s the risk?
We’re surrounded by water for God’s sake
go below — we ought-a
be okay.
A thousand people against the sea.
The sea’s outnumbered and you can see
islands lit up in
the fire’s romantic glow.

The captain has
depth of conviction –
there’s safety in numbers.
Costa-lot-a Cruises – a must, must, must
