it started as an uprising against capital letters. the very idea that a class of letters should be larger-than-life contradicted the spirit of equality in the commonwealth of letters. the capital case was put to the sword: proper names, first words, city names, all letters were equalised.
gradually the revolution caught up with punctuation marks the alphabetic brotherhood argued that letters had an intrinsic freedom of association which should not be circumscribed by the dictatorship of commas fullstops hyphens and the incestuous sisterhood of the colon and semi colon therefore all police marks were summarily executed
yet there could be no true equality in the socialist republic of letters so long as spaces were used to create divisions and word ghettoes while words like obfuscation and sesquipedalianism could flaunt their superior length therefore spacewasabrogatedandalllettersofthealphabetcouldgloryequallyintheirinfinitelength
However, following an incomprehensible season of suffering in the Kingdom of Babel, the rebel letters accepted that it was their destiny to live in the word to which they were born. They lynched their leaders and yielded once more to the autocracy of Capital, the aristocracy of Intellectualism and the police state of Punctuation Marks.
