Christmas Spam

I have received spam on Christmas Day.

"Humbug" embodied in my e-mail's inbox.

I, of course, deleted it

Right Away.

I hope that maybe,

Perhaps, they are Jewish

Or Buddhists or something else

And they just forgot what day it is.

One would think they would pause

In their twisted manifest destiny,

Their mission to spam the entire world,

To show a bit of respect for the savior's birth.

Or perhaps they meant it to be

Their Christmas present, from me to them,

That I might buy their product.

But then again, they didn't even send me a card.


A/N: Merry Christmas, everybody.
