In The News – NaPoWriMo Prompt Challenge

Challenge: Today I challenge you to find a news article, and to write a poem using (mostly, if not only) words from the article! You can repeat them, splice them, and rearrange them however you like. Although the vocabulary may be “just the facts,” your poem doesn’t have to be — it doesn’t even have to be about the subject of the news article itself. Happy writing!”


I couldn’t resist the challenge. So I located an article and here’s what I came up with. The article link is at the end.

In The News

The severity of their rare move
that was supposed to provide security
Exploits the unpatched flaw.

They steal personal data, track you online
Even take control of the very machine that
has given you some sense of life.

Tricky attacks from back doors
and evil hacks, threaten our very existence.
Turning off Flash and clearing your cache
is no real solution to the menace.

Scores of affected are looking to new
horizons. Let’s hope they are Chrome.
Because Internet Explorer is so out of date
it’s time to leave it alone.
