Billy's Problem (LMS)
(Originally seen in the Like-Minders Theme Park 'Propper Spelling School')
Billy's with us here today
Troubled with a plight
He doesn't quite know what to say
Does he bite or byte ?
When his tongue and teeth connect
(Cos teeth not lined up right)
Does he say “shit!, ouch, I bite”
Or “shit! and ouch, I byte ?”
It doesn't matter Billy. Shit, ouch I byte is fine.
Shakespeare spelt the same word in different ways
for no apparent reason
