All ways spell cheque your work

Spell chequer

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.
I dream, therefore I am.

I am a spelling Nazi - I admit to it - I get driven to distraction by ads for Garage sales :eek

SELL IT RIGHT .. Maureen Clifford ©

What is it with the chester draws - garage sales seem to spruik?
And comments saying 'not aloud' - they make me want to puke.
For art was never Chester's forte, furniture he was selling
a chest of drawers, unwanted now, in which once clothes were dwelling.
And from the rooftops someone shouted, screamed the news aloud,
till someone pointed out that excess noise was not allowed.

There are folks who hold flee markets - I want to run away ...
their advertising will alas not entice me to stay;
although perhaps a flea market one should consider well
for that perhaps might make one itch, and that would be pure hell.
And garage sales I have to say are often quite misleading
for few have garages for sale - a need for good proofreading.

One lady here sells Kooshans - well she's not on the ball,
I am looking for cushions but I'll pass - hers don't enthrall
Yes! I know I am pedantic but these errors me dismay
for it seems the education given was frittered away.
Why cannot people get it right? There is spell-check to aid,
not guaranteed infallible but better than portrayed.

I liken it to shopkeepers, who in windows, display
their goods for sale, for passersby to see. They make a sale
if goods are shown attractively and if the price is right,
but no one buys a three legged chair - because it won't sit right.
And no one buys a dress that's torn, nor trousers with one leg.
A good salesman displays his best, then for sales doesn't beg.

One should promote their very best when on public display,
for three seconds is all you have upon that judgement day,
people will make their mind up in that minutia of time ...
so why give a bad impression when a good one's so sublime.
If advertising in a public space for all to read ...
ensure your ad presents you well and sales it won't impede.
