Letter: ‘She made light of both the oughts.’

Ode on a Hero & Zero

Did you see what she did?
What she did was nearly hid!
A change in font she slipped by us;
Was it artsy, or female bias?

Boldly did she face the HER
Did the same with the ZER.
Without even second thoughts,
She made light of both the oughts.

What will she do to a poem so picky,
So “In your face,” to our Ms. Nikki?
Will it cause a brow to furrow?
Might it be named a happy HERO?

(God forbid—not a ZERO.)
