No digits, no backslashes, no dollar signs, no quotes...

I wonder is it possible to get rid of square brackets, pipes and '^'?

Update: Yes, it is possible!
Update2: use ellipses and reformat the code

    Woo, impressive. Now you just have to get rid of the bangs (!) and you could be onto something.

    update: mmm, even better. I think we have a masterpiece.

      The bangs are on their place, see update. It became a poem.

    Wow, very cool. It looks like there should be a secret message in there somewhere.

    I don't mind occasionally having to reinvent a wheel; I don't even mind using someone's reinvented wheel occasionally. But it helps a lot if it is symmetric, contains no fewer than ten sides, and has the axle centered. I do tire of trapezoidal wheels with offset axles. --Joseph Newcomer
