I have been away for a few days, in a location so remote that there was hardly any mobile phone reception, let alone Internet. I wish I could say it was quiet and peaceful, and that I had time to write, but I was also helping to look after 47 schoolchildren. So my book remained unread and the only word I got to write was a child’s name on his hiking boots. Imagine my surprise, however, when I came back to find so many gracious comments on my last blog post – but also a record number of spam! The messages are getting a little more clever and less obviously robotic than when I first started blogging, but they still infuriate and amuse me in equal measure with their ineptitude. Does anybody actually believe in them and allow them on their website? Why do they still continue to do it? Anyway, it inspired me to write a little doggerel about it.
Unbelievably and of course,
unquestionably, just because
your content means so much,
the best of there is! Such
magnificent information, to spread
the word, advance us, befriend.
Delivered in timely fashion, our group
Truly appreciates your knowledge… P__p!
We make all the right moves,
just not in the right order.
We tumble into worn-out grooves,
we hover at the border
of decency and shame.
Who is to blame?
