I wrote this poem after being rejected by so many publishers for being dyslexic as a cover note feel free to use

Dear Reader

I wrote this letter just for you, To let you know. some of the things, I like to do.

Poems large and small, and somewhere in-between. some are flights of fancy, Of places never seen.
some are quite hard to write, Others like the growing tide. Seem to flow and ebb, Although to you I must confide.

Whilst the stories that I've written, The few that must be told. Some may suit the very young, While others just the old.
Some may find them funny, Whilst others sad and mean. Some may suite the youngsters That are never heard, But are somewhere, In there teens.

So dear reader, Some may put you in the mood. While others think my poems rude, I hope it isn't you.

More's the pity as we are meant to have spellcheckers, proofreaders and editors.... but oh no... if thou be found out to be dyslexic or lacking in some way then an automatic rejection shall you get...

Being my self a dyslexic, I can but emperfise with you, Alan. Maybe we should set up a dyslexic genra publishing books. There rather number of dyslexic who write. Yeaers ago I googald Dyslexic writers. Up came SO SO many dylexics who write. Dylin Thomas is but one. He wrote in a mirror styile. A socviaty by his fans, adermant Dylin WAS not a dyslicik. REfuseing to except thire Dylan Thomas had imperfexshans! Mikal Angerlo had th same veryatan of Dyslexia, he to wrote mirroaly words! Only in resant years that finaly it been understood. In the pst it was thort he Angerlo was writeing code! Wishing you all the best Alan.
