Fontzilla's Poetry

I used to write a lot of poetry. I've dabbled in some off and on over my adult years.
Here are some of the things I've written, in no particular order.

I wrote new lyrics for the tune "Space Trucking" in 2002, celebrating fontaholics everywhere. The lyrics are set with Shy Fonts SF Electrotome.
