In the days of old
A story told
Found it's way to paper

The spice of life
Or better strife
Neatly born on typewriters

The mysterious deeds and detectives pleas
And facts of sports are given
The small details as big as whales
Reviel the secrets that are hidden

The mind, the facts and a little time
Along with creative splinder
A reporter trying to find the angle
That will make a story bigger

The ancient keys
Of a dying machine
With ribbon and metal letters

A story told on pages that fold
With pictures and adds from sellers

A magnificant machine
That made all words clean
Provided correct the speller

Along with letters
And puncuation as feathers
Communication was much better

A combination of high technology
With artistic values of high quality

A solimnity mixed with wise cracks
And facts
The writers best ability to discribe
A certian act

And the typewriter
With it's standard theme
Letters all perfect punctuation clean
