Oh! My handwriting, my Handwriting
It seems as if elephant are fighting.
Frequently my teacher thinks aloud
That my handwriting is awfully stout
Everyday I have five minutes lecture
That my handwriting should have a better structure.
Most of the letters are in air
They, enrage the teacher, she pulls her hair
They say that my writing should be legible
Can’t they think of something more sensible?
To correct my copy it takes an hour
The teacher must have great strength and power
While correcting my paper the examiner might say,
“You know to correct this paper, I took a day.”
And all the while I keep thinking
How, oh how can I improve my handwriting?
