Ukulele Typogram

Al-‘ud… machête… ‘ukulele!
Lit­tle wooden box with strings
Sailed o’er the ocean
Can you hear it sings – Aloha

Head stock to the tail block
My dog has fleas
Rosette and a G–string
Plays your ABCs

How did the Moor ban­dore get mo’ bet­tah?
Koa trees are rootier
Lov­ing life on a lava flow
Carv­ing waves with a luthier

A tiny mas­ter­piece of typo­lutherie, the Ukulele Typogram tunes and con­di­tions your ‘uke-abulary, and upgrades the orthog­ra­phy of chord shapes for aspir­ing vir­tu­osi. A muse for the re-entranted.
