He looked stupid!

He met his teacher,
A learned, erudite one
And told his aching problem,

“I have a mobility problem:
I cannot tame my fingers;
So slow they move
And when I drive them fast,
Clumsy my writing looks”.

He looked down at him.
“What? Are you stupid?”
The question was well written
In his bright, erudite eyes.

“It’s not a cognitive one;
It’s a mechanical defect,”
He couldn’t explain to him

For he felt so sorry;
He looked already stupid.
