Email Babies
by Pam Osbey

(ode to the slammers)

Another day in the bulk
folder reveals these things...
Pierre exclaims, "Mortage
lending is for you!"
But I know I'm no where
near getting a house
so I just cock an ear
and shake my head.
"Employment Status" shouts
to me that they are hiring.
Like I can get a better job
than I already have.
Christian Debt Management
says with a "snap" they will
help me with my financial woes.
Hey, I already know what to do
to increase my credit score.
Be responsible and pay my bills on time.
The Opinions Network offered me a part-time gig just giving my opinion, but
even I know there's another price to pay
by doing surveys online.
Free Foods says that they have a "free lobster dinner".
First I don't like lobsters
and second, nothing in this life is free.
Oh, I am so sick of these slamming emails.
These people must work overtime on getting out emails cause every day i get at least 50 unwanted emails which
i delightfully delete.
They got me jonesing on simple days
where I had no bulk email folder.
When I didn't have to check and erase comical messages that just ain't for me.

But i guess for now, I'll check it again for a good laugh or two.
At least it will keep me from being blue.
