If you have to get it EXACTLY as in the pictures, I guess some kind of
line-drawing/markup command is what you're facing (and I don't know how to
draw them). However, the customary thing in this kind of notation is to use
breve notes  (the modern kind, which has single vertical lines, close to
what you have in your example).


Some say I have no conscience. How false they are, even to themselves.
I am the only conscience which has ever existed. As wine retains the perfume
of its cask, I retain the essence of my most ancient genesis, and that is
the seed of conscience. That is what makes me holy. I am God because I am
the only one who really knows his heredity!
