Topic: Spam (not the meat) (11/03/11)

TITLE: Hope

Spamming is relatively new.
Maybe this is not really true?
This is something the devil does
And has done since time was.
Whatever he says is a lie,
But a bit of truth does apply,
He tries to convince everyone
Sin is OK and also fun.
Don't despair, for there is hope still.
Try God's anti-spam, if you will.
The devil's message He will block,
When close to Him you choose to walk.
You're no good the devil will say.
God's answer is that you should pray.
To die for yoi, I sent my son.
My love for you can't be outdone.
You fall short, says the devil's spam.
I have a plan, says the great I AM.
The devil says you should worry.
He also says that you should hurry.
God wants all of your cares to take.
He will never leave or forsake.
He has an instruction book, too.
The Bible's promises are true.
So just ignore the devil's spam,
And listen to the great I AM.

Great poem and so true
CD Swanson 11/17/11
Beautiful job! I loved this poem - you depicted the spiritual battle of good versus evil through poetic words. Nicely done. God Bless~
Martha Black11/17/11
I liked your poem. It is very true. Satan tries to mess us up, and God moves in and unmesses our messes. Praise God!

Interesting take on the topic. I like the rhythm of the poem and the truths you've conveyed. Nice job.

I thought this was very clever. You covered the topic in an entertaining way.

My only suggestion might be to divide your poem into verses. The white space makes it easier to read and is less overwhelming.

I really appreciate your analogy and you delivered a wonderful message in a fun, not preachy, way.

Beautiful, and well-said message. Such an accurate, spot-on analogy.

A re-formatting of the poem (like the extra line spacing mentioned by Shann) would make this piece shine even brighter.
Bryan Rudolph11/28/11
Very creative perspective on the topic. A+, for that.
