THE DAY'S WORK

In verse, the story of the great armored-car robbery, when a group of gunmen in perfectly timed action collected half a million dollars in three minutes -- and got away with it. The verse form seems unjustified; there is neither rhyme nor rhythm. The style is cryptic, abrupt, but it has a certain vigor, and strikes a new note in the ""hard-boiled"" school. Perhaps that market will like it. But the conservatives and old guard wont.
