The NSA Raven
December 11, 2013 1:21 PM   Subscribe

Once upon a database query, while I pondered weak security,
And many avenues of access via backdoor,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a wiretapping,
As of some one gently sniffing, sniffing at our server's door.
“‘Tis some hacker,” I muttered, “tapping at our server door
Or just a virus, nothing more.” -- The NSA Raven

Hah! Great concept. But if you're going to parody The Raven you need to go all the way and mirror the damn length of the thing, it just gets creepier and weirder as the story unfurls.

Here's one more:

“Robot!” said I, “thing of evil! — robot still, if drone or devil! —
Whether Bush sent, or whether Barack launched thee here inside,
Giant, and with much sedition, on this network with precision —
On this page in Google's vision— ping me truly, override —
Is there — is there secure encryption? — ping me — ping me!", I cried
Quoth the raven, “Classified.”
