I was called on to write a submission,
funds were needed for Special Ed.
After hours of work, Boss handed it back,
here's what the silly man said,
'Fix the spelling errors, Cherry!
I'm shocked at this, coming from you!'
I asked which errors he spoke of;
yet somehow already knew.
I had written a powerful programme
but he wanted me to comply
to American-English spelling;
but no, I was forced to defy.
'Am I employed by you, Sir,
to teach the English language or not?
I am? Then this submission stands,
let's have no more of this rot!'
You see, I'm not American
and write English as it's intended,
so tried and true, thru and thru ,
I can't manage...all skills extended.
But I cannot bear for 'All Stars'
to be handed in for lack of starters,
so I'll try tried and true, through and through
then just wait for the rotten tomatoes.
