here folks behold a true subversive
schools are closing out the cursive
every kid the wide world o’er
can toss old writing out the door
each kid will own his keyboard toy
from manchester to mandeloy
just throw your granny’s words away
the thoughts expressed are now passé
all hand-writ history down the drain
for your own modern-wired brain
(yet pen and paper shall survive
when no more printers are alive)
