Crimes against rhymes

The New York Times asked Londoners for their experience of petty crime, and got, it must be said, some not entirely serious responses – story below:

Here’s my contribution – for those fortunate enough not to have heard it, the announcement in question, intended to encourage us to report suspected terrorists, exhorts us to: “See it, Say it – Sorted”.

Dear caring, concerned New York Times,/

The tube is a hotbed of crimes:/

That jingle with “sorted”?/

I want it reported/

For culpable absence of rhymes.///
