How do you address the many
if readers you're not gettin' any?
There is one simple explanation
you must use "Fontification"

By magnifying every word
your works will scream out to be heard
By a doting public eager for
the biggest words a page can store

In this way you'll reach them all
big and small , short and tall
Trading size for some content
the facts you now can circumvent

And tell it like it really was
but still not like it is
Because news is what has gone before
the rest is just Show-Biz !
