Found Poem

(I'm not sure I believe in such things but.....)

Front page of paper.

Thugs Kidnap Bank Boss

Abducted in his car
Stabbed with Syringe
Threatened with gun
Mystery cash drop
Vehicle burnt out
Culprits on the run.

(each phrase above has a dot before it on the page)

I think this almost qualifies as a "found poem". I was wondering if it were deliberate but then I read, later on, in a totally different story:

Monty, a seven year old German shepherd, has twice rescued his friend Maurice Mackay from drowning......"The pair formed an instant bond about nine years ago...."

I think that qualfies as a mistake.....
