Poetry Friday: Spam Poem

I don’t have time for a full-on post today, but I remembered this little “found poem” I created recently from a particular collection of email titles in my bulk message folder. When I saw the headers, they looked like poetry. Odd poetry, but poetry none the less.

I like this poem! Reminds me of a letter I once got from a Nigerian Businessman in need of my urgent assistance!

Totally awesome -- that repetition of "[none]/[none]" is a framing stroke of poetic genius.

Clearly, the rewards go to the one paying closest attention to life!

And here I thought it was going to be a poem about the 'food', Spam!
Having just worn my Spam Jam t-shirt the other day (Friday, I think!) I guess I had that on my mind. Whichever spam, your poem was fun. Rhyme on!

Spam is pink
MotherReader rocks,
