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…
That’ll do them no good,
Until they earn the finances to care. 🙂
*”thumb the nose at”…an obscene gesture of disrespect or rebellion.
