Check, please

Check, please

In writing a check where the ink slightly bled,

I note that my 2 as a 5 could be read.

Retracing the number produces a curse:

Instead of improvement, that just makes it worse.

Indeed, for that 2 on appropriate line,

Ambiguous, hides in the guise of a 9.

So, putting the pen to the paper once more,

I find that the blotch is now posing as 4!

So much for my penmanship, snared by such tricks;

For some things defy all attempts at a fix.
