Why Do People Confuse Lose and Loose?

Have you done this one? if so, please's griping my nerves! Lose and Loose. I'm shocked about how folks cannot use these words correctly. L.P.

The word "lose" means to "not win" and can mean "misplace"
But "loose" means slutty or pants that have extra space
Don't be a silly goose
Think Bullwinkle the moose
If the Dervish taught class, the spelling test you'd ace!

There is a Difference Between Your and You're.

One of the most common grammar mistakes is your/you're and it makes me crazy. Seems few of my Facebook friends know the difference. A limerick please, to help them learn.

"You're" with an apostrophe means "you are"
"Your" is possessive, like "this is your car"
Days on Facebook show
This rule, so few know
Apathy? Ignorance? Please raise the bar.
