Slim Slam

(This is the 1-minute epos I presented in the poster/poetry slam preceding the poster session at the TEI conference in Würzburg)
Once upon a time there were six brave girls
Working in such caves they call archives.
A good fairy came along and said, through his beard,
Come, miladies and hear the tale of the TEI,
For with the Guidelines you may
Alas! We followed the siren’s voice
And not only digitized letters
But could also make the choice
What could cure our distress?
Not even the poor students
That we taught at great expense
Of time, ’cause peekaboo:
See, they are infected too,
The disease has spread all over!
Come to our poster!!
