Lines On A Type Writer - Poem by James McIntyre

Having received a letter from a gentleman, done with a type writer,
and glorying in its superiority to the pen; we replied as follows :-

You glory in your type writer,
And its virtues you rehearse,
But we prefer the old inditer-
Moves two-forty, prose and verse.

And let each man work his will,
But never, never do abuse
The ancient and glorious quil
From the wing of a noble goose. *
