Snail mail

Royal road couriers
did it or they would get killed.
Indian chariots
have done it with Mauryan backing.
Espionage
in the south have done it too.
Credible Hun
with their nails have don’t it.
Cursus publicus,
put Rome ahead of the curve.
“Genghis and Kublai
did it greater then all others,”
Marco Polo,
the European, said so.
To the USA,
government mail, going . . . going—
Winter has come,
no more pen and paper;
where’re we going?
Here comes the internet
for what? I don’t know yet.
