forget your fancy postmodern digital fonts
time was a typewriter aesthetic thought
there was poetry in blitzkrieg,
blitzkrieg in poetry

around the time that Hell first discovered
phosphorous and zimmerit armour
invested in Bessemer process
and self-loading system

thus shaping the world into
the image that we have to love
so taught in the schools and
nailed down in the textbooks

but write what you like, gloss upon it
whatever font or form, rondel or sonnet
