a Poem for National Handwriting Day

Count the keys on this LARGE PRINT typewriter pictured above.

Writing Mechanics 103

I let my machine, a Dell, write for me  
That way people can read what I want to say  
 Simple writing. drawing, and coloring,
all are hand and coordination skills,
mundane, take practice, I color the best
But it's the thought to be conveyed that counts


I spell better than my spell checker does  
Now mine is a belligerent speller,
always wanting to exhibit the new,
variations of our oft used familiar words  
Shut it off I won't, never will happen
cause I've retired my old Mr. Webster
Onto paper
Down deep I'm a clever guy, so I think
But my thoughts must surface to allure you,  
telling what's in my heart, for your pleasure 
One-room school vocabulary comes out;
paper though there is none, fingers to keys,
all into the machine and on to yours

(Tidbit:  why do we still call it "writing")
