Ode to a Spell Checker

Found on a mailing list:

Eye halve a spelling checker
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye striks a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me a strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My checker tolled me sew.

  1. Ode to a Spelling Checker
    (the long version)

    Eye halve a spelling check her;
    It came with my pea sea.
    It plane lee marks four my revue
    Miss steaks aye kin knot sea.

    Eye ran this poem threw it
    Your sure reel glad two no.
    Its vary polished in it’s weigh,
    My checker tolled me sew.

    A check her is a bless sing;
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when aye rime.

    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too bee a joule;
    The checker pours o’er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.

    Bee fore wee rote with checkers
    Hour spelling was inn deck line,
    Butt now when wee dew have a laps,
    Wee are knot maid too wine.

    Butt now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flare,
    Their are know faults with in my cite,
    Of nun eye am a wear.

    Now spelling does knot phase me,
    It does knot bring a tier;
    My pay purrs awl due glad den
    With wrapped words fare as hear.

    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud;
    And wee mussed dew da best wee can
    Sew flaws are knot aloud.

    That’s why eye brake in two averse
    Cuz eye dew want too please.
    Sow glad eye yam that aye did bye
    This soft wear four pea seas.
