Twelve Days Of Editing
(Sung to the usual tune)

On the twelfth day of Christmas my editor sent to me
Twelve sheets of typos,

Eleven tenses slipping,

Ten logic shifts,

Nine words repeating,

Eight names a-changing,

Seven sentence fragments,

Six breaks in viewpoint,

Five surrrrr-plus sceeeeeenes….

Four passive voices,

Three plot holes,

Two deadlines passed,

And my final draft – that needs some chang-es
