Promised villanelle revelation

See previous post for context:

Poesy ain’t accomplished with cyberspace clicks
and chipsets and current and flashes,
but by boldness and bombast and by bit-bashing bricks,

And clawing, and wailing, and slide-guitar licks,
and cymbals, and crashes ‘lectronic life smashes.
Poesy ain’t accomplished with cyberspace clicks.

Words don’t get written with wiki-tagged tricks
cold plastic mediating word-clashes.
But by boldness and bombast and by bit-bashing bricks.

you have hope in your heart for your poetic picks.
So fall to your keys, wear netcloth and ashes,
poesy ain’t accomplished with cyberspace clicks.

And so seething soldiers, stomp the SCSI with sticks,
glory comes not by mass e-mailing your asses,
but by boldness and bombast and by bit-bashing bricks.

So now put the real world in your dub-dub-dub mix,
Live life at work, at party, at classes.
Poesy ain’t accomplished with cyberspace clicks,
but by boldness and bombast and by bit-bashing bricks.
