    well i have not written this poem..i don't know who's the author but i liked it so i'm posting it here
    it's kinda funny....

    I take it u already know
    of tough and bough and cough and dough ?
    on hiccough, thorough, laugh and through ?
    well done! and now you wish perhaps.
    To learn these familiar traps?

    Beware of heard, a dreadful word
    that looks like beard and sounds like bird,
    and dead: it's said like bed, not bead!
    for goodness' sake don't call it deed !
    watch out for meat and great and threat,
    they rhyme with suite and straight and debt.

    A moth is not a moth in mother
    nor both in bother, broth in brother,
    and here is not a match for there
    now dear and fear for bear and pear
    and then there's does and rose and lose--
    just look them up and goose and choose,...

    it found it funny...what about u people??

    sukriti: Well, the author, (or should we say poet? ) is Bearnard Shaw....

    No one matches his wits!
    Do read his stuff... Google 'Bernard Shaw quotes' and have a look!!!
    You are in for a surprise!
