Spell Checker - Brenda J Wood

Spell Checker

Spell checker no’s it’s limits
It strikes when iron’s hot.
It corrects where it is Abel
It says when I am knot.
It’s been working on this pome.
It struggles to secede.
There-it’s got it happy
But spell checker cannot reed.

  1. Brenda, thanks for this little poem that so ably demonstrates the limitations of the spell checker. You put a smile on my face at the end of a long day :)

  2. Thanks for the humour, er humor, er, . . .
    I guess my computer doesn't write proper either!
