Eye halve a spelling checker
That came with my pea sea.
Plane as day it shoes 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 shoes me strait a weigh.
As soon a a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lee ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it.
I am shore your pleased two no,
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
I did a cheque, witch tolled me sew.
