Clever! Was it plagiarizing or aping? (-:

Was "QWERTY" an accidental? Or was it deliberate?

Cryptopop,

Aping, for sure.

I owe that one to inspiration from my great-great-great uncle, the Venerable Solanus Casey, a famous Capuchin monk who had a great sense of humor.

Intentional, to suggest that the monkey had been pecking randomly at the keys when the sonnet was produced. I originally wanted the whole thing to look like recognizable strings of adjacent keystrokes, but I settled for that one classic chunk, instead.
