Mensagem:  Hi ,

Nice Carnival for everybody . I need some help to understand this poem . I know that it meant to be funny , but I didn't catch all the meaning . It uses homonyms instead the right words . Could you help me find all the homonyms ?
my attempt in red:

Owed to My Spell Checker   
Eye halve a spelling chequer  I have 
It came with my pea see  PC
It plainly marques four my revue   ?
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.  mistakes i can not see

Eye strike a key and type a word 
And weight four it two say  and wait for it to say
Weather eye am wrong oar write  whether I am wrong or Right
It shows me strait aweigh.  straight away ?

As soon as a mist ache is maid  a mistake is made
It nose bee fore two long it ? before too long 
And eye can put the error rite  I can put the error right 
Its rare lea ever wrong. Its rarely ever wrong
 
Eye have run this poem threw it  I .... through it 
I am shore your pleased two no  I am sorry....?
Its letter perfect awl the weigh ?
My chequer tolled me sew.  ?

thanks in advance ,
Madá
