The moving finger writes….

“The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”
Edward FitzGerald.


And my version 🙂


The moving finger writes,
Everything must be put down.
All must be recorded.


The finger doesn’t just write though,
The solitary digit has a second use.
Harsh critics often spy it,
Saluting them with pride.
