Please Forward


I know that your intentions are
No less than heaven sent;
I know your altruistic goal
Is pure enlightenment.

I know you think my slate is clean,
My mind an empty jug,
And that the stuff you forward is
All welcomed with a hug.

This email is to let you know
The opposite is true:
You’ve got it wrong, you’ve missed the bus;
You haven’t got a clue!

In fact, when I see “FORWARD TO:”
I feel the bile ascend;
I re-address the thing “TO HELL”
And quickly click on “SEND.”

And, if the Devil shoots it back,
Encouraging defeat,
I rant and rave and scream and curse
And scornfully “DELETE.”
