there's a device named scanner
justifiably used to scan to archive
scan to correct & modify

photographs, transparencies & slides
all can be scanned,
publish it to the Web to glorify

others' photographs, transparencies & slides
all can be scanned,
to edit, correct & beautify
to distort & terrify
to cut & paste, resize & call it a new design
to morph, tween & call it thine

scanning others' images
is only an exercise
hoping that no one will ever recognize
the originator & original published design

scanning well-known images & design
is a sure way to scoop a gold mine
it's fast & no one will ever mind
who is the originator & what was the original design

with digital watermarks & fingerprints
scanning copyrighted images & design
is a sure way to get digitally cuffed hands realized
culprit's face scanned & on the Web infamously publicized!
