- “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.
