The Spellcheck Troll



Don’t spell it like that, your grammar is wrong,
Here’s a screenshot of words just to prove it,
Don’t mean to belittle, I’m civil as long,
As I can comment on everyone’s transcripts,


I’ll try to make fun, show how clever I am,
Hold my ground if responding in kind,
I’m a fountain of knowledge, doing all that I can,
To annoy folk with superior mind.


About the author


The author, Paul Anthony Obey, born in 1970, is working class, brought up in a working class family and has raised a working class family. Married to a proud New Zealander, Nicola, they live in the North West of England and share 4 children; Ryan, Hayley, Bethany and Seth, one of each from both.

My work is dedicated to all of those who believe in what I am trying to do and to some of those who don’t yet get it.
