On reading an article in a magazine which told of the 100 most commonly misspelled words in the English language.I decided to write this poem where i use 50 of them.The words often misspelled are in capitals.
Take the test with a friend. This is not a "pop" at the bad spellers among us. Just a wee bit of fun.
We all do on OCCASION ACCIDENTALLY MISSPELL.
AMATEUR or CONNOISSEUR of LANGUAGE, who can tell?
CONSCIENTIOUSLY PIECE together, PECULIAR bits of RHYME.
MANOEUVRE letters GERGEOUSLY for others to MALIGN. (13)
Are your sentences a PRIVILEGE or IGNORANCE placed in print ?
Is your spelling fast as LIGHTNING or do you need a hint ?
Are you highly INTELLECTUAL and committed THROUGH and through ?
Is this KNOWLEDGE check RIDICULOUS or acceptable to you ?(7)
DISCILPLINE and EXPERIENCE, all APPARENT with GUATANTEE.
PRONUNCIATION not enough to spell LANGUISTICALLY.
SKILLFUL REALIGNMENT of the letters needs ADDRESSED.
PALALYTIC IMPLICATIONS QUINTESSENTIALLY EXPRESSED. (13)
A RICOCHET of RHYTHM,SABOTAGED in a QUEUE of verse.
CACOPHONY of tone with THEIR spellings UNREHEARSED.
Is your spelling KAMIKAZE, a HEMORRHAGING of ink.
A KARAOKE nightmare, COMMUNICATION on the blink. (11)
So LITERARY GENIUSES, i am all APOLOGETIC.
If my UTTERANCE is FOREIGN and my spelling is pathetic.
You see, many words i UTILIZE in this poem i create.
Have been misspelled for years. "How does your spelling rate?" (6)
TOTAL = 50
