Gust Becos I Cud Not Spel

Rating: 4.6

Gust becos I cud not spel
It did not mean I was daft
When the boys in school red my riting
Some of them laffed

But now I am the dictater
They have to rite like me
Utherwise they cannot pas

Some of the girls were ok
But those who laffed a lot
Have al bean rownded up
And hav recintly bean shot

The teecher who corrected my speling
As not been shot at al
But four the last fifteen howers
As bean standing up against a wal

He has to stand ther until he can spel
Figgymisgrugifooniyn the rite way
I think he will stand ther for ever
I just inventid it today

I love but l'm miffed as it is longer than 300 characters, while my own comment on the poem is being disallowed and they keep asking me to offer up 10 to 300 characters. So l cant submit

Is this poem about G. Bush? I've seen the note he wrote to C. Rice, and he does like torture.... Hmmm... -chuck
