She died of the clickety click

The following is a cute, little poem, but I wonder if it represents a real typist’s thoughts, or what the author imagined a typist might have felt. Certainly there is drudgery in any type of work, but typists of the late 19th century generally expressed enthusiasm for their profession.

From The Robinson Index (Robinson, Kansas), January 18, 1895 –

Note: Spelling variant – “clickety click” and “clickity click.”
