So Confident in their Slash
And Burn mentality that
Cheerfully dismembers your perfect manuscript.
So superior in their Knowledge of
Grammar and spelling and usage and stuff
That you dozed through in school and refuse now to Learn.
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.
