That Typographical Error

It will Happen!
The typographical error is slippery thing and sly,
You can hunt till you are dizzy but it somehow will get by
Till the forms are off the presses. It is strange how still it sleeps;
It shrinks down in a corner, and it never stirs or peeps.
That typograhical error, too small for human eyes
Till the ink iis on the paper, when it grows to mountain size.
The boss just stares with horror, then he grabs his hair and groans;
The copy reader drops his head upon his hands and moans.
The remainder of the issue may be clean as clean can be,
But that typographical error is the only thing you see.
