Sometimes I make typos

RECOMMENDATIONS                                                                                                        (Staff, 7-9, 10-12)

Occasionally I post poetry here. Poetry isn’t the most popular form of literature these days, but I’m hoping it will make a much-needed comeback.

Ok, so I think you’ll enjoy this. What I want you to do first, is read this poem. I’m not going to say any more yet.

Sum thyme’s I’m ache Thai pose

Sum thyme’s I’m ache Thai pose
Butt eyes up hose
Hats apart off fusing
Come pewter’s. Whirl oozing

Are ebb ill it he two ought toe
Core hector weed rat her
Ma sheens um owe no
how herds chews too gat her

let hers inn us pacific hoarder,
Witch his beater. En dime,
air head squid gills a porter
whose know shaving thyme

Whiff hit snot hunter limed inn read
They’re snow since inn re reed ding
Too Czechs peeling four miss leading
Thinks eye mite half’s ed.

Now I’ll add a clue, and say that this poem was composed entirely of homonyms . Look it up if you have to. Now read it aloud and maybe it will make more sense to you.

And finally, to put you out of your misery, here’s what it sounds like when it’s read.

I found this on Stephen Burt’s poetry blog and he linked to the video from Silliman’s blog.
