I remember a time long ago when spam
was something one wouldn’t eat.
Since those good old days spam
has become something other than fatty meat.
Every day now I find loads of spam
in my mailbox. Oh what a treat!

Written in response to Mad Kane's Email Hell invitation for limericks and haikus about that lovely new age scourge – spam. Well, I have to sheepishly admit that I neither have limerick nor haiku to offer but something more similar to a very short ghazal.
