ON THE NEW READERS OF TWITTER UNDER THE MILTON SOCIETY

Because you have thrown off your Luddite ways,
    And with stiff Vows embrac’d the Internet
    To Tweet, email, wall post and I forget
The other terms (to list ‘em would take days),
Dare I for this adjure the Civil Word
    To force abbreviations (OMG!)
    And conform to mere One hundred Forty
    Required by Dorsey and that small Bird?
Scholars whose Learning, Life and pure intent
    Would have been held in high esteem with Paul
    Must now be nam’d @MiltonHeresy
By shallow Tumblr and Face’ what d’ye call:
    But we hope @MiltonSociety
    You’ll follow and find worthy of your meed;
		This brand-new Twitter feed
May entertain and update you for years,
Clip URLs, though balk at “Me, too” Cheers,
			And succor my just Fears
That you shall think, when I take up this charge:
“New Twitterer is but Old Twit writ Large.”
