Doodling will be outdated,
people eaten by lions? No more.
Teachers saved from being drawn into alligator pits.

Hairy faces enrol in the margins of essays no more,
no longer
watching,
waiting,
reading.

Scribbled words replaced by others…
The delete key.

Open up a drawing program…
Not the same.

Scratches and scrawls aren’t made with a mouse.

Scratches and scrawls
