Grievous Errors

if you study statistics
you may come to realize
that only twenty percent
of any group is normal
while eighty percent
thusly becomes abnormal
only twenty percent of
humans read and learn
they way they should
while the rest of us
unique individuals
must struggle along

I have transposition problems
knowing this
I am hyper careful
when measuring
setting out to bake
a new cake
I misread seven ounces
to read seven cups of flour
the flavorless chocolate
brick now sits
in my trash can
instinct said
something is wrong
but, no I had checked
and checked
they were wrong
it couldn’t have been me
I even wrote and complained
before I checked one more time
