"The Moving Pinger reads: and, having read,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to retraverse a Line;
But all thy Tears plashed out a Word from it."

Lines inspired by news that "A pinger locator has detected signals
consistent with those by emitted by aircraft black boxes."  (CNN, 11
hours ago.)
