TYPOS: a poem about child abuse for children all over the world

today i get to eat
(October in America is DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MONTH)
Mama said
uncle “stole my innocence”
but I didn’t know
what it was when
he was stealing it.
He said
“it was a game”.
That’s not what Webster said.
According to Webster
both uncle and mama
are wrong.
Does the dictionary
have typos?
(innocence: not guilty of a crime
game: amusement, sport, fun)
