Check The Spell Check

I thought I put down,

Words, confused a bit.

If spelled incorrectly,

Missed by spell-check.


Like, it feels so right,

To write and sit,

About a half-off sale,

Boat sails that fit.


Or handwrite a tale,

About the ones on whales,

They splash their tails,

Calls sound like wails.


You’ve seen the scene,

About the force of a bear,

Majestic and mighty,

With strength, so bare.


The model, she wears,

Then falls, rips and tears,

Such beautiful wares.

Now she’s in tears.


Go back, read again,

It’s serious, not fun.

If wrong, you’ll cry,

End up looking dum.

            Great poem. Spell check isn't always smart. Spell check on my "smart" phone makes some words ridiculously misspelled especially names and names of cities. But spell check on the computer is my friend! Great idea to write about!

            • WriteBeLight

              Thanks Christina. I notice typos here and there in newspapers, television crawls and alike and always get a kick out of some of the errors. I appreciate the comment!

              I am a horrible speller so I rely on it heavily, but have to careful that the self correct does not embarrass me. Sometimes I am way out their. Heh, heh. Nice to read u again.

              • WriteBeLight

                Very clever. The last word in the poem is incorrectly spelled wrong on purpose. But, it is used quite often, I read. (Dum instead of dumb.) Thanks so much for the comment Augustus!

                • Augustus

                  You know, I wondered about that. The dumb part. Thanks.

                  • WriteBeLight

                    I received a text once that I was totally unable to translate and I was kind of afraid to respond, I don't understand? But did and they hadn't even noticed spell check had replaced their word with another. With Social Media and texting, misspelled words are as popular as The Kardashians! Enjoyed the poem!

                    • WriteBeLight

                      Ha Ha Corey. That is funny. Thanks so much for your comment!
