Damn Editors

Damn Editors,
So Confident in their Slash
And Burn mentality that
Cheerfully dismembers your perfect manuscript.

Damn Editors,
So superior in their Knowledge of
Grammar and spelling and usage and stuff
That you dozed through in school and refuse now to Learn.

Damn Editors,
So skillful in their ability
To make Readable the work that you created,
But were unable to Finish in one hundred revisions.

William's Whimsical Words:

Good editors add value by subtracting from someone else's work.
