Speaking (again) of Homophones…..

My friend Brian, the Air Force Vet, sent me the following clever bit, entitled “Ode to the Spell Checker”:

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me 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 chequer tolled me sew.

Sadly, I can relate.
