Typos

The devilish blighters



Oh, you pesky, scheming Typos,
you drive me quite insane,
stealing letters and changing words
to spoil my work again.

I know you pinch my commas
and remove a full stop or two,
uncross my 't's, un-dot my 'i's ,
all manner of mischief is you.

Inserting words I do not want,
deleting those I delight in,
you collaborate with Autocorrect
to sabotage my writing.

Capitals thrown in randomly,
formatting all gone astray,
your mischievous japes wreak havoc.
How I wish you'd just go away.

And so, dear reader, my scribbles
are full of mistakes, plain to see.
But as explained, I can't be blamed,
it's the fault of the Typos, not me.
