I Will Differ to All

She didn’t differ but she typed the word.
She meant “defer.” Her phone did not detect
the error though the syntax was absurd
(we differ from – deferring to’s correct).
We understood her meaning – she was heard;
her sentiment is what we all expect.
Cooperative as always, she remains
a neighbor who mistypes and entertains.

(Ottava Rima)
