OK, so this post has nothing personal to do with any of you... I have an aunt who forwards EVERYTHING that comes to her..... Anyway, thought this was cute (and original).
ODE TO SPAM
By Mary Egidio, Lakeland, FL
I do not want to read your spam.
I do not want it, Sam I Am.
I do not want to read your jokes.
That virus warning? It's a hoax!
Don't send me tests I must complete,
Or cutesy poems that are sweet.
I get enough of spam, I do.
I hate to see it come from you.
Spam offers drugs to make me stronger,
Or make some part of me grow longer.
So, when a joke or tale you see,
Please, please don't hit that forward key.
Instead, why don't you drop a line?
How are your kids? Is your life fine?
How can I pray for you today?
Read a good book or seen a play?
What victories can you report?
I'd love to read it - long or short!
I'll be so glad you didn't spam.
Thank you, thank you, Sam I Am.

Now, isn't that a nice way of putting it??
