A witch has cast a spell upon me!
Help me help you read this right
Turn the page around and raise it
To the nearest light
Or — if it your preference be —
Raise it to a mirror
The fancy writing style you'll see
Is obsolete — Forever
Not remotely user-friendly
As a keyboard would allow
Tho I could haply snap a photo
And upload it to the cloud
I must have asked the Lord above me
For a talent Most Terrific!
Perhaps I might have made myself
A little more specific
Silly skill in 2020
Penning backwards using cursive
'Script' was hard to write already!
Harder in reversive
