018 - Ode to a Spell Checker

I believe too many people rely on their spell-checkers rather than proofrad their documents. The problem is a spell-checker won't catch words that are misspelled but that result in other legitimate words.  The following shows what can happen. 

Ode to a Spelling Checker  
I have a spelling checker 
It came with my PC 
It plane lee marks four my revue 
Miss steaks I can knot sea. 

Eye ran this poem threw it 
Your sure reel glad two no. 
Its very polished in it's weigh, 
My checker tolled me sew. 

A checker is a bless sing. 
It freeze yew lodes of thyme. 
It helps me right awl stiles two read, 
And aides me when aye rime. 

Each frays come posed up on my screen 
Aye trussed too be a joule. 
The checker sum pours o'e every word 
To cheque sum spelling rule. 

Bee fore a veiling checkers 
Hour spelling mite decline, 
And if we're lacks oar have a las, 
Wee wooed bee maid too whine. 

Butt now bee cause my spelling 
Is checked with suc grate flare, 
Their are know faults with in my cite, 
Of nun eye am a wear. 

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays 
such soft wear four pea seas, 
And why eye break in two averse 
Buy righting wat too pleas.
