The arthritic old, simply don’t

The young are all
Universal and uniform
Ambidextrous texters
Tweeting twenty four seven

Us, those twixt & tween
Tetchy and testy
Are all thumbs
Caution hitting keypad
Tweedle dee & tweedle dum

So, while my index finger
Might be an unsure typist
Tap-tap-tapping touchpad
My middle does not hesitate
In rising to the occasion
And raising itself
In salute to those
Digitally deft
Technosavvy tykes
