In days of your, there lessons were quite strict,
And everybody knew witch word to use.
But nowadays yore likely to be tricked
By homophones in writing you peruse.
Such errors have become ubiquitous:
Its pointless trying to call each instance out-
Your likely to be called punctilious
Or worse, to feel a moment of self-doubt.
Four when a clever friend’s the one to make
The lapse, theirs consequent uncertainty;
Who’s instincts are at fault for the mistake?
Who’s brain misfired, albeit partially?
Retreat then, to you’re trusty usage guide,
To tell the truth from lies, lay, laid, and lied.
