Hands-On

''How did that first typing expert
Choose for the keyboard's first line "QWERT"?
Had it been you; had it been me
We could have gone for A B C.
Confused, my tremulous left hand
Types words no on can understand.
So I must take a course, by heck
Or else resort to hunt and peck.

Comes the computer! It is strange
No brave soul's said "Time for a change!"
Right on! All hands will not desert
"YUIOP" on right, left hand's "QWERT"!

Mary S. Allen
(Site owner John Allen's Mom)

from her book of verse, Women's Wear
