Beethovian Handwritten Sin

Beethovian Handwritten Sin

Stumbled upon handwriting of Beethoven
In chaotic disarray his notes were written
When asked, “Should this be an F or G here?”
“Oh! I don’t know, love, do whichever you think best,” was his answer clear.

To decipher his words, I bid a magnifying glass
His manuscript demands atypical class
From manuscripts to first copies, all seem spooky
With ink fleck and memo hurled in a state, swoopy.

Pity on copyists, editors and pharmacists
Who struggle scripted horrors that unassist
Apart from the sinful sin, Beethoven’s composition lays influence
As ‘tis said, “bad writing is a sign of intelligence”.
