BEWARE UNFORTUNATE FINGERING!

BEWARE UNFORTUNATE FINGERING!

 

Keyboarding is a challenge

For an older fingering feat…

Pressing ALT or CTRL unknowingly,

Hasten a blogger’s defeat.

Those fat flying fingers, notorious

They are for hitting wrong keys…

Don’t expect “Spell-check” to save you,

With words that may cut off your knees.

Oh, spell-check is great for sounds-alike,

And similar-meaning words…

Don’t automatically assume its choices are right

Or you may end up with funny-sounding verbs!

Unfortunate fingering takes time to screen

So edit your own adventures…

Please don’t come to me to bail you out,

I’ve got my own mistakes to cure!
