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

TITLE: From Plea to Not So Shining Plea

SPAM, SPAM go away.

Don’t come back another day.

I open my email and there you are.

“You’re our one millionth visitor, you win a brand new car!”

“Your bonus is a free vacation” says the subject line from my boss.

I think that email is safe to toss.

My bank must have my mother’s maiden name.

I think I’ll keep that to myself and not play that game.

The credit card company needs to check my number.

What is this, Dumb and Dumber?

Delete, you are my favorite key.

Is there an end to this email sea?

Yes, I know you are Pfishers of men.

I won’t click that link that will cause my eyes to sin.

Oh look! Here is another chain mail.

Don’t break the link or your next venture will surely fail.

Just a few more deletions, the end is near.

We will do it all again tomorrow. Never fear.

Looks like a legitimate SPAM email -the kind I get everyday! Good job with this.

God Bless~

Great job expressing emotions evoked by dreadful SPAM. Loved the title, and loved the use of "Pfishers of men".

This is a fun poem. You did a great job covering the topic.

When I write poems, I have a hard time developing the correct rhythm. One of the tricks I use is to count out the syllables in each line to make sure it flows.

It may help the flow if you don't double-space between every line, but instead double-space only every 2-6 lines.

I think you have a creative flair. This piece made me smile and took me back to my childhood.

Ha Ha! I loved this running conversation with your computer.

Clever, title! You were definitely on topic, and you gave a very descriptive account of the Spam game. Some improvements needed on the crafting of the poem. i.e. rhythm. Ex. The word "surely" interrupted the rhythm. In Jan's Basic Grammar which you can find on the Forums, there's an excellent thread on how to improve your poetry skills.

Lots of potential. Keep writing!
