a

I’m dotting every i, and
I am crossing every t.
I’m putting letters down, and
I erase them frequently.

b

I’m holding whole words hostage
at the point of my pen.
If I don’t like the way they look,
I scratch them out again.

c

G – R – U thinking like I am?
Could our ABC’s rebel?
If they went out on a strike,
whatever would we use to spell?
