Praise the Dot Matrix - Time Travel Institute

Mighty marvel of the 90s.

Symphony of mechanical prowess.

Your impact pins dance in perfect harmony

An ode in each pixel.

Perforated paper traveling with grace.

Tractors and feeders guiding its destiny.

ASCII characters adorned the paper.

Such monochrome finesse.

Mesmerizing sounds.

An orchestra of solenoids.

A chorus of joys.


You left no room for errors.

Your precision unmatched.

Letters, spreadsheets, and forms.

All effortlessly dispatched.

A dance of pins.

Striking the page in a rhythmic display.

A symphony of dots.

Patterns interlaced.
