English Spelling Is Impossible

Post date: Sep 20, 2012 10:7:47 PM

I’d added two new poems to my delectable Poems by Others page. The first gem is “Candidate for a Pullet Surprise” by Mark Eckman and Jerrold H. Zar, which playfully presents words that are all spelled correctly but mostly used incorrectly. The second poem, in a similarly satirical vein, is “The English Lesson” by Anonymous, in three parts, which makes fun of English orthography. High-brow literature? But of course!
