Type Setting

After the Apocalypse,
Americans will alter the alphabet
so each character
represents each human language sound.

It will not be Sequoias’
eighty-six character alphabet
that the Cherokee implemented
around eighteen-o-nine.

But it will be similar in concept.
One graphic artist will be voted into office
to create the new alphabet
in a digital manner with the latest font grapher.

Because by post-Apocalypse time
everyone will know committees
always fail to accomplish their designated goals
under budget and by the deadline.
