Oscar Wilde
The Villanelle of Snooping Internet Giants

The pirates of the internet oceans soar
phishing the little known facts about how I pay
when surfing the waves on the liquid data privacy law.

Tacking around the rocky offshore data store,
Ahoying into the swashbuckling search engine fray,
The pirates of the internet oceans soar.

Chests of golden gigabyte preferences sink to the seafloor
mined by the dark web divers of the deepest information superhighway
they're surfing the waves on the liquid data privacy law.

Sharpening the newest weapons for the coming crypto-war,
encoding their sacred secret texts in the golden gateway,
The pirates of the internet oceans soar.

My rights, rank and privileges sold on a deep web cyber-store
because stripping me of my claims is simply child's play
when surfing the waves on the liquid data privacy law.

The sparkling of shiny new features bait us to ignore
them ransacking our choices, our knowledge and our freedoms each day.
The pirates of the internet oceans soar
when surfing the waves on the liquid data privacy law.

Oscar Wilde, Irish playwright and poet, was convicted to two years in Reading Gaol, today in 1895.
