Spam, the Digital Kind

In the inbox

of my electronic mail,

I open it to see an unknown address

and I open it

with good caution

and knowing that it could fool me,

a person with knowledge.

It was indeed Spam,

but with grammatical errors

that make an English teacher cringe

to their graves

that someone with terrible English

is out there,

but they should not fear

because it was a foreigner from Nigeria,

who wrote such a letter.

Spam is Spam

and it is outrageous

in what it tries to pitches

to the unexpected

and that it tries to con us all

into giving away what we earn.
