"Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning. The resulting poem can be defined as either treated: changed in a profound and systematic manner; or untreated: virtually unchanged from the order, syntax and meaning of the original." - from Wikipedia
Taken from Introduction to Electrostatics.
A simple electrostatic configuration
Consisting of four conductors
so the plusses are near the minuses.
It all looks very comfortable.
Now, what happens if we join them in pairs, by tiny wires?
You might well guess that nothing will happen
Well, that sounds reasonable,
but it’s wrong.
The configuration is impossible,
for there are now effectively two conductors
and the total charge on each
One possible way to distribute zero charge
is to have no accumulation of charge
and hence zero field everywhere.
This must be the solution.
