Copy and Paste

Before I knew all the rules

I was constantly fooled

Trying to copy without miss takes

Oh what a mess I would make

Even now I’m a copying fool

Sometimes my knowledge of the tool

Leaves a bit to be desired

If employed I would be fired

For oftentimes in my haste

It doesn’t all adhere in the paste

And what to my wondering eyes should appear

Something not meant, too odd for my sphere.

Haste makes waste – a little bit sexist, but–1575☺️

  1. We have rules at work about certain documents that you aren’t allowed to copy and paste in, because the chance of an error can have serious consequences. Otherwise, it’s the handiest tool ever! Love the poem–very clever!
