The truth about typewriters

An old-fashioned typewriter works like this:

You press the key, if you don’t miss,

The typebar swings and hits a small head,

Compelling its owner to paint in dread.

A typewriter gnome has been taught one letter,

That it will remember (at least it’d better)

How to portray with some ink and a brush,

Always the same, no mistakes or mush.

The “TSAK” you hear, a head-on collision:

A new letter in your peripheral vision.

Therefore, computers are more humane,

No chance of contusion in a tiny gnome brain.
