A cutting from the archives!

May 31, 2014

I found the following cutting – taken from The Times Magazine that comes with the Saturday edition.  This particular cutting is from…….I do not know when and have not been able to research a date either!  My recollection and this is based on a hazy memory is that I cut it out in the late 1990’s – nearly an antique!

Anyway it certainly made an impression then and still made me chuckle today!

I did discover that is was written by Martha Snow – although this could be incorrect – perhaps that is due to the age of the piece!

The full poem is here

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 quay 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
It’s rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It’s letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
