English Lit

Aisle never no watt kame over mi
too sine up four that coarse.
Eye shirley mussed halve lost my scents
oar bin throne off my hoarse.

They said they'd teach mi how two right,
know knead too halve thee blews...
and awl sew how too spell reel good
like own that grate Fochs Gnus.

Eye rote this peace of poet tree
and then wee red it awl allowed.
Then eye ran it threw thee spell Czech;
it was sew write too dew yew prowed.

They taut mi how two bee a barred;
isle hall it inn two class today.
Aisle halve too take sum English Lit;
eyed knot take it any other weigh.

Note: Homophones verified at or checked at to be sure they are valid words. Strictly speaking "thee" is a homophone for "the" only when the latter is pronounced with a long "e", which is only the case when it precedes a word beginning with a vowel sound. Such is not the case above, but I made an exception. Other exceptions are breaking apart words such as "also" and "poetry" into two words which have homophones. "Fox News" was rendered as "Fochs Gnus". The name Fox comes from Fox Films, founded by William Fox, whose birth surname was actually Fuchs. Fochs is a variant spelling.

    G'day Roy... I sure had a laugh at this poem of yours Roy. The spell checker on my computer does not agree with Australian English at all. Thanks for the chuckle Roy - Lindsay
