Thought this was on the forum already, but not according to the search feature, so here it is [again] [or it might have been in a CSI chapter newsletter]...

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

(Sauce unknown)

[The sauce might be the British Council. Just in case, and it seems likely since my spell checker did not like chequer and marques, then the credit goes to the British Council -- http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/stories-and-poems/eye-halve-spelling-chequer]
