A query - I want to validate something that I used in some lyrics.

Is it possible (in an entirely extreme, SI-complete context) to wrap a dyson
sphere (or layers of computronium, etc) around a black hole, instead of a
star? By pouring matter into it (or via some other mechanism???), would one
get capturable energy? Is this scenario useful, or would it be a dumb thing
to do?
