Beware the Spellchecker!

Having received a letter recently from a Solicitor asking us to call in for 'the singing of the documents', the following verses from an anonymous writer send a cautionary note to all of us tempted to rely too heavily on the Spell Check facility on our computers!

OWED TO A SPELL CHEQUER

(ODE TO A SPELL CHECKER)

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea.
It plane lea marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a quay and type a word
End weight four it to say
Weather eye am wrong or write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye kin put the arrow rite
It's rare lea ever wrong.

Eye halve run this poem threw it
Eye am shore your pleased two no
It's letter perfect awl the weigh
My spell chequer tolled me sew!
