I think this is probably my favourite so far. I just love the theatre of the language. Grandiose and with hints of irony and spectacle. Fabulous, really. All together now: Macdougal! Pareto! ZANZIBAR!.

"Carat"

To continue with the exploration of Spam Poetry, and what it could become when performed I have chosen to edit the line breaks in this piece to show the flow of genius that this piece conveys. I think you'll agre that the comment on societies' obsession with downtalk and superiority is captured perfectly in the line "foreclose by condescending". Such work is rare these days - and such insight! Oh how I feel refreshed.

    furnished a misspent, personae.
    and field day the severance
    the shortcut lighting
    the scrap as intellectual
    foreclose by condescending,

    a Stars and Stripes
    a handout

Political

This little nugget seems more business based than alot of the spam poetry we've seen on here so far. A nice way of bringing poetry into the commercial age. The subject, as used for the title of this entry, shows elements of post-modern pseudo classical irony.

The detailed research into my area of expertise, and the clever targetting to jobs near where I live really tempted me to think about taking up this job.

The salary of $0 was very tempting too - if only they had been more specific about whether that would be before and after tax?

"Decade"


Once more stock tips offer eloquent and inventive performance poetry. Imagine the delivery of such lines as "mountain bike, the wheeler-dealer and legal pad the used".

"Shirt Dick Man"

A personal favourite - what inspiration thus fills me! I swell with my (small) pride!

    teach am anything. how side supposed to gym social. music reference black.
    corner back commit night friends wanted,
    am music is hard my use? black anybody end.
    parents side prison, whom music black gym bad. slow end anybody?
    music miserable again use? speaking latter thats studied?

"Don't pay too much for software"

Another elegant piece, maybe this is the spam equivalent of a haiku? Though without any kind of structure, obviously.

    steps being reading.
    use purpose tying suddenly drew next? bad prison servants?
    beautiful whom you?
    a not filled night studied, turning wife fire you reply being.
    respect shining social find force side. is respect next purpose is?

"Stock Tips"

The first poem is a long and drawn out piece, but its message is strong. It accompanied spam regarding stock quotes.
