I was given the gift

To know how to write

But left with a shift

That is just outright



I can't spell.


Smaller words are okay

But words like:

--Inauguration Day

--Alphanumeric Display

--Jean Bap..per... Monet

I cannot spell

Nor hardly say


"You're a writer,"

They think,

"Who can't sound out

or remember rules

as a writing devout?"


No, I can't

So whatever

Move on


It's an editor's job

To correct my misspellings

It's my job to write

The story I'm telling.
