Poetry Day: Bholed Owr Greightness

Let’s be honest. You know who this is and where he’s from.

(This was a silly poem that got a lot of traction back in the day.  Wrote this in 2011 near the start of a big poetry period.  Enjoy if you get it.)

We R Soupereor

Two all uhthr crechurs

Owr brayns R whyse

And hellp us kreate

We bilt a wurld

Abuhv the uhntamd whyld

Pruving owr soupereorite

Owr citees wil nevr fal

Bkaws we bilt two last

Owr wurks wil b remembrd

Aftr we R gon

The beests nv us

For tha wil nevr rech

The levls that we threyev

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    This is great! Oddly enough I’m writing a picture book on a seventeenth-century court case, which has a ton of old English. The text looks just like some of this!

    Could be Old Old English! I see that Disney has decided to keep Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow – I frankly couldn’t see a different one.

  3. Fun! And yet I wonder who exactly was writing of their “greightness” in such a, um, quirky way.
