I start my day and it is fine
From my desk I go online
I check my email to see what’s new
And what I see is “From ME! To YOU!
…and Dad, Mom and Sister, Brother,
Aunts, Uncles, cousins, OTHER…
FWD: FWD: FWD: FWD:
U must C this! It’s so untoward!”
You there, “friend”, do you know you’ve sent
Your entire address book’s content??
“The puppies, bears and next the cats”
Oh stop, please stop, I don’t need that
“Attachment 1 and 2 and 3
Attachment 4 and 5 and…See?”
The list goes on my heart has sunk
You’re more annoying than I had thunk
The message stretches, goes berserk
I can’t read more – I have to work!
“If you love your mother, forward twice”
I won’t do that, no, that’s not nice
I love to hear from friends, that’s true.
That list no longer includes you!
You eat up others’ precious time
To share your life that’s less sublime
It makes me want to kick and yell
Look, don’t email. Go to Hell!
