The Art of Typing

I’ll be as honest as I can be

the art of typing has always eluded me

in school it was mandatory

a class I hated unapologetically

always failing to use my memory

to find each and every key

but I didn’t give up you see

I developed a Columbus strategy

landing on each key a discovery

with two fingers basically

doing all the work for me

the strategy was a mystery

to some who admired my energy

and speed, but it was a guarantee

that I could compete unconventionally

with those typing from memory
