A found poem

A found poem is, according to Wikipedia, "a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning" Once you become sensitive to the possibilities, little poems start turning up everywhere, like this one:

Welcome to
the big time
    wing lovers.
Get ready to
sit back and
be dazzled by
the bold taste of
Mighty Wings.

incredible spice and
massive flavor they’re
signaling in
a new era.

Be amazed at their
Delight in their
Gasp at their

And see for
yourself how
they can lead 
your meal to 
any day of
the week.

Powerful stuff, and right off a McDonald's tray liner.
