A Brief History of the Grid poem

This was an assignment for my AP Lit. class and my teacher really liked it, so I thought I'd share it here! Hope you like it!
The Grid, a digital frontier, a world
Of light, of sight, of programs red and blue.
Of bits and bytes and bikes of light, of discs
And ships. A laser shot, a User lost.
Return, and evolve, the goal: perfection, order.
The ISOs, like a flame, emerged, imperfect.
The coup of Clu, the User hidden, purge.
The hero fallen, now a traitor, scarred.
In Argon, Tron reborn. The Uprising
Begins, the city rises. Then Clu arrives.
The T now red, the Renegade no more.
The cycles pass, the years as well. And then
The page is sent. The son of Flynn, on the Grid.
A Recognizer, Rinzler, Flynn, an ISO.
Escape, deleted Clu, and Rinzler sunk. Tron lives.
