SOME THOUGHTS ON SPAM…

SOME THOUGHTS ON SPAM…!

 

Thinking about spam today,

We mostly throw it away…

Like a drainage trap

To catch the crap,

Is it anything worth the outlay?

When OUR POETRY CORNER started,

Attention by bloggers seemed thwarted…

The commercial crowd

Was willing and loud,

At least we were in someone’s target!

I tried to sort out sometimes

The “spam” honestly inclined…

To comment on those

Who don’t thumb the nose,*

At decency refined.

“How to speak Australian” is had,

From a blogger whose English is bad(?)…

I don’t think so,

But they’ll gladly show

That maybe YOU are the cad!

I tried recently to sort

Out someone I thought was a sport…

In her very next post-it

She angrily roasted,

The poem which had had her enthusiastic support.

If we’re desperate for attention, they are there,

But it seems hard to let them share…

Posts misunderstood

That’ll do them no good,

Until they earn the finances to care.  🙂
