Topic: Spam (not the meat) Level 1 Beginner
ENTRY TITLE: Spam

Spam

Spam is like:


Honey and jam without any toast


Bitterness and hatred
Oh, never boast!


Food in the teeth
and no pick to pluck


Thirty days of rain
and thirty to go


Sun that keeps shining; endlessly.
You know.


Days without nights
And nights without days


Cries of the down trodden
and nothing to give


Black and gray,
no color at all


Red, orange, bright yellow and green
And, no shade to shed
These colors
forever



Thirst without water
but Pepsi instead


Cakes without sugar
And sugar;
no salt.


Salt without pepper
And all pepper;
no salt


Life without death
death without life


Me versus you
You versus me
And truly,
Only God shall see


Now spam is a nuisance to me
Like a


A fly in the kitchen
just waiting to see
which can is opened
chili or peas


Dogs without barks
and barks of no dogs


And cats who meow
and meows,
one;
dreads


And coldness of winter
without any snow


And spam continues
like this pray tell:


a dry parched desert
without any water


And an ocean filled
only with butter


A bird that screams
and never ever sings


A mailbox filled
with mostly clutter


How dissapointing
spam can be


expecting a note
but only see
A Spam sent messenger
of whom we can't see


Words of luring!
Luring that grabs
unaware are those
Spam stabs!


Watch for signs!
When the box is full
cause spam grabs Ya
using clever tools


Words of wisdom
and wisdom galore


Promise a vacation?
Or so it seems.
Spam offers hope
boasting with beams


messages of promise
promises' told


Dreams of far wonder
and dreams of fright


Spam gives a tale
A tale of delight


But,
Remembering wisdoms'
already said:


Spam is like


Toast and honey without any bread.

This was an interesting read. I enjoyed your prose/poem. I liked the latter part the best, it really flowed nicely. Good job - God Bless~
Randy Foncree 11/17/11
I don't get this...had a creative touch though...thanks for your efforts...
bonnie Jennings 11/18/11
Dearest Randy, Thank you for feedback even though it wasn't positive, at least it was honest. On the topic of SPAM lets face it, not too much serious thoughts could really be expressed in my opinion and so, I try to keep my world light, filled with humor and spam would be considered light weight, lets get rid of it with all attempts of humor if possible. Perhaps the next topic will be for the more serious thoughts and not so childlike. But, again, thank you for your honesty, I did not read any of yours, but I will. I do like metaphors and allegories the very best. Sincerely Bonnie

Poetry really isn't my favorite genre but I enjoyed your piece. The almost nonsensical contrast was absolutely brilliant. You did an outstanding job of nailing the topic, not only with your words but with the contrasts you presented. This is one of my favorites. (I wonder if everyone will "get" it, but I did and appreciate your irony)

Thank you, Shann Hall-LochmannVanBennekom, I so very much appreciate your wonderful comment. It meant so much to me as I truly needed to hear your understanding and insightfulness of my poem. Every thing in our lives Christian or non are not always black and white or even grey for God has given us humor when we need it the most, that is the joy of oil of gladness when we grieve or have fears. So this is where most of my writing arises. Thank you, I will put you on my list of must reads. I'm recuperating but soon will be back fit as a fiddle and able to read your endearing words as well.. Thank you, Bonnie


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
