I’ve never posted on Theme Thursday  before, but I wasn’t happy with most of the other Thursday prompts. When I saw the Theme Thursday prompt in Viv’s blog, I had to try it. The prompt is ‘Spam.’

by Mike Patrick

Each morning, soon as I arise,
to my computer I do rush,
I open up my email box
and look at heaping piles of slush.

The only good news I can find
is in my daily dose of spam.
It matters not if it’s for sale,
or a twist upon the latest scam.

It links people with a need.
How else would ere a man like me,
become the very best of friends
with Nigerian royalty.

Viagra ordered with a click,
if I discover I’ve a need.
Perhaps I’ll find a woman there,
this lonely life to supersede.
