Comments from spam-bots get trapped in the web-log-machine – most of them make no sense whatsoever, but sometimes they’re a laugh, or are so nice that they make me lament that they’re not real… (insert sad face here) Nevertheless, every single one of them gets churned back into cyber-ashes in a ruthless fashion.
For whatever reason, at this late hour, I thought it might be nice to occasionally share. So here’s the first shared spam, courtesy of a (shock! horror!!) porn-spam-bot:
“Hi there, everything is going nicely here and of course every one is sharing information, that’s genuinely fine, keep up writing.”
Well, I’ll take that. Thanks a bomb, computer-generated complimentary commenter! I will “keep up writing”. Thanks for the encouragement.
So, in honour of that encouragement, and in the spirit of sharing, here’s a poem from my brain:
Babel Tower’s Shadow
The curse of the Tower of Babel still lives
The absence of knowledge is all that it gives
It bonds us in darkness and keeps us afraid
Humanity’s light now does no more than fade
As we regress
Hate breeds hate
As we decline
Hate feeds hate
But can we ever break the cycle
Shatter the curse in a Grand Revival?
Short answer: NO
Because this poem constitutes the intellectual property of Babel Towers Inc.
Reproduction in any form is prohibited by corporate law
Offenders will be prosecuted with extreme prejudice
No correspondence will be entered into
Do not ask for mercy as refusal often offends
Yeah, sorry about that.
Yours in derailed prose,
