I am by no means a perfect speller,
Or even great at grammar,
But reading a post written in text-speak
Is like bashing my eyes with a hammer!
Seriously, I cannot be the only one
Who sees are language die
Every time u use u for "you"
and refuse to capitalize an i.
when numbers stand 4 words
and punctuations thrown 2 the wind
i dont no where 1 line ends
n where the next begins...
the overuse of ellipses
can bring tears 2 my eyes...
n evry time a words misused
part of r language dies...
where and were and wear
in form n function r knot equivalent
n misusing common words and phrases
can make the riter seem ambivalent
i no r language is a living 1
and changes r bound 2 take...
But please be mindful of the way you write.
If not for me, for clarity's sake!
