(Dedicated to Karen O'Leary)
A friend of mine who is very keen eyed
read my poetry and said as she spied,
you have a small boo-boo did you know -
or is this how the poem is supposed to go?
Her question did throw me for a loop
I hurriedly ran back jumped through a hoop
to read my poetry I was so proud to hold
posting so those could read what I told.
To my total utter surprise there it be,
a huge typo right in front of me
in the middle of my poem for all to see
a misspelling that embarrassed thee.
Quickly, I fixed my boo-boo mistake
hoping it didn’t cause those to ache,
for spell checker is faithfully there for me
I call her Karen, she watches over thee.
