Typos Like A Rush

The feel of face pimple, mountain of topography 
A rush of molehills sat firm on the face, picture perfect  
Looking back at me in mirrors, does my bump look big   

Holds in form the same gravity of annoyance 
As typos firmly sat in notes, pee ka boo
Poems and essays written, on thoughts  

Steven Fry thus quoting from Oscar Wilde
Thus wanting to make a point, on peek-ka-boo
Once included a note to his publishers

Saying "I will leave you to tidy up the woulds
wants, wouldn'ts and should, 
will and shall, should and whiches"
Etc etc etc etc.....on and on and on and on, pee ka boo 

I wrote a poem, an epic poem 
And got the title all tipsy wrong
A few typos, nicely stack like they belong 

Hidden from view, on first read
Second read, third read, blind 
Still hidden from view, pee ka boo 

Only to stand out like a post 
With flag on mountain 
On the critics first read 

So I ponder with frustration asking questions
Why does such glitches  always happen
Not always, sometimes, but too often, sometimes 

Sometimes it takes a whole day and more 
While typos play pee ka boo, hiding and poking out, bumps 
Like a fresh pimple, ready to be popped, squeezed out 

Would, for will, there and their
And all the other misfits, misfits 
My mind reads over, blank to blind 

At least I have 
Steven Fry and Oscar Wilde 
On my side, looking at the bigger picture 

Best have a second read before the critics' read 
Just in case, I overlooked another pee ka boo
Misfit, hiding from plain view

  1. W.H. Auden once sent a handwritten draft of a long poem to his publisher. One line went "And poets have names for all the seas". It came back typed as "And ports have names for all the seas." Auden liked this better and left it uncorrected.

  2. Yep, those darned old typos keep popping up like zits of writing indeed.

    Oscar Wilde had invited you to a special dinner in your dreams tonight. I'll see you there! I'll be the one in the Steven Fry costume!

  3. haha great play on words and a wonderful feel to this piece. Yes should always have a look on through just in case, that can be my downfall at times..haha

  4. haha...i do this...typos...and miss them plain as day until someone points them out and they are obvious and i feel stupid of course...ah pee ka boo

  5. This made me smile...amazing what the eye can miss on that second, third, fourth read. I've posted some doozies! Thank goodness for the keen eyes that keep us on our toes! A fun-derful share (intended typo!)
