My SEND Problem


There is a problem I have got

I've really got to mend

To check my poem once, twice, thrice

Before I go press SEND


Now why do I this silly thing?

Embarrass myself so

I get excite and must press SEND

To go my poem, go


I know you wait with bated breath

For me to next press SEND

Give me some berth when I excite

(I'm trying hard to mend)


I've checked my spelling once, twice, thrice

It's ready, set to go

I'm now exite and pressing SEND

Go my poem go


You've got a spelling error.....


What? I checked it three times.....

It just seems appropriate to add -
If you're eager to share
Be as eager to take care! 😔

I can live with typos in eemails, but not errors in posts.

I don't like seeing it in anyone's work. unless it is apparent English is their second language or unskilled with English, if you know what I mean.

To me, if someone is obviously proficient with the language it shows carelessness. It happens often.

I liked the linger/finger couplet 😎

You do it quite the most
I wouldn't really mind so much
But please type in 'repost'.....😋

Very true in my own experience with emails. How often it looks OK
and I send it - only to read the copy and discover a silly b....y
annoying typo!! Grrr.
I MUST tell myself to linger
Before I use that finger 😃

Once I've sent a poem
I want to send one more
So eager was I to send it
I've just sent the one
That I sent before!
