National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #13 (pt. 1)

Here is my poem for Day 13 using the POETRYisEVERYTHING prompt: Write a poem in the style of bill bissett.

Not really my thing, but I managed to combine the phonetic (mis)spelling with a bit of fun at my own expense (I’m a copy editor)—and even threw in a Jules and the Polar Bears reference.

fǝnětǐks iz evrthing
thers anuther wy 2 spel
if yu wud onlee look in th rite places

but sum folks haf 2 find problemz
