Poem - Award Winning

The poem “Award Winning” is about a real spam that I received. I'm used to getting spams about somebody wanting to give me big piles of cash. One day I'll take that far away former prime minister up on his kind offer! This time I got one, thought it was a cash spam, and then realized it was the OTHER kind of spam. This poem is about the absurdity of these messages.


Award Winning
Poem for Day 99 – 20141231

What you need is an award,
an award winning wiener.
That is what
the spam message said!
At first I thought I had won cash,
a big pile of moolah perhaps?
But wait, I gasp and blush a bit.
I realized the truth,
of what they want to sell.
There is an upside!
Could I win a prize?
What competition would that be?
Who would issue the trophy?
Would I win big bucks,
or just relish the given glory?
Relish on my dog,
see what I did?
And consider this...
it is all I really need?
My life would be complete,
if I won an award,
that's what I need,
my sausage and me.
