Iím a bad speller
Iím a bad speler and I think
you should know.
But this doesnít mean that Iím bacward,
I can speak my mind,
I can even write.
But my speling is so atrosious
you may think it tripe.
For speling to me
is like a mistery.
Sometimes itís an 'E' beefore the 'I,'
and other times, itís the ĎIí beefore the ĎEí.
All those speling rules!!!
And when you learn them then they go and tell you the rules
at times should be broken.
Iíd much prefer to expres miself,
Now I could never write
a university thesis,
cause in the speling alone
they would pick it to pieces.
I reckon miself,
I've got a mild touch of dyslexia.
Thatís spelt, d-y-s, l-e-x, i-a, I think!
Or is it, I-a, l-e-x, d-y-s.!?
At any rate
I know that me spelingís rather atrosious,
for when it comes to spelling
Iím not at all precosious.
Yes I succeed; Iím a bad speler
for when it comes to the written letter I must admit,
Thereís much room
for me to get betterer.
