Auto Correct – A Poem

My dear darling auto correct;

Thy selfless typing materialize

Words of puzzlement and tease.

I type hello you answer “yellow.”

I type jello, you answer, “hello.”

I type rainbow you answer “boo.”

Is my typing too spooky for you,

Or, am I your one and only boo.

Proving my devotion I type love,

You immediately answer, “loved.”

Is our relationship history to you,

Did I cross the red squiggly line too;

Overriding your style even-more so.

I type charms; you answer “chants,”

Shall we collaborate sweet sonnets;

Editing our melodious disconnects.

  1. A friend of mine dictates his text messages, and they end up even more mangled than autocorrect. Technology tries to be smart, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way!

  2. Oh auto correct! 🤣 so funny! Great poem Suzette. I love this one.
    I swear the auto correct robots are trying to sow discord— it seems they are heck bent on sending out deliberate miscommunications!!! They are persistent too. Sometimes I have to correct their errors three+ times!

    1. 🤣 I love your comments! Yes, it is “awkward” when it creates to its own “fancy” changing our ideas. Yes, awkward is the correct word. Nicely said. Thank you. Enjoy the day. 😊

    1. «Je suis tellement content que cela vous ait fait sourire. Oui, les outils qui nous aident à “parler” comme l’auto correct sont une source de compagnie mais parfois un défi mais nous arrivons à travailler en harmonie avec eux … on espère.
