English-Humor? Or Humour?
It all started with Bri Edwards who said ‘enthral' is spelt ‘enthrall'
But residing in Malaysia, the Queen's English was taught to all
My laptop was bought from the States; locked to an American drawl
But it was in English U.K. in the software that I installed
For the English in the U.S. I can't see eyeball to eyeball
That was how the issue arose and I fell into the pitfall
The computer says it's ‘humor' but the software would not play ball
Insisting it is spelt ‘humour', and it was not funny at all
Then words will be underlined red, and it would get me rather sore
So, I came to a compromise, which turned out to be a miscall
Sometimes turning to the U.S. though my English then will be mauled
