However, the caste system explained-
(Driving is a cautious job
and one needs professional training)
for the Bajorans
the first time
set a persons exact line of work
(soldier, artist, religious figure)
based entirely on their family line.
We are not talking about
the Driving Test
since that requires another
But I vaguely recalled
sailing on a ship
I still had no idea
and Advanced Awareness
or if it was one at all.
Seagulls are having a field day
out on the high seas.
*** these lines are taken entirely from those annoying emails in my spam folder. And yes, it seems some of my spam can be very poetic!
Super cool. Works tremendously well. Thanks, Kathleen. K.
I totally want to rummage through your spam folder. I mean, you got “Bajorans” and “Okinawa”! How cool is that?
I had to google Bajorans- is a Star Trek reference- who knew? I had been reading about Leonard Nimoy- I assume that is why I started getting weird trekkie emails. And have no idea why the Japanese references were popping up. Smiles
Maybe you were searching about famous/common Marine Corps overseas bases? Okinawa might one be the most popular one.
No, it was very random – had not researched anything that would somehow trigger that. Everything else at least had a vague reference to something that I had looked at. www=world wide weird. smiles
I never knew spam could be so poetic … loved it 🙂
WOW–almost makes me wish I had spam (shhh, no I didn’t say that!).
Seagulls in spam, love it! Your poem title is fantastic as well as the poem that follows. Hard to believe it was created from a spam folder. Thanks so much for taking part in the challenge!
Your closing two!! Nicely done!
The high seas and seagulls – Not bad for spam! (I didn’t see the ‘from subject line” but went into the body of each).
I thought the same – thanks for dropping by.
How come YOU get poetic Spam and I just get threats of being shut down. No fair! LOL. It is hard to believe this is spam, it makes a fantastic spoem!!!!! I cant write one that good on my best day! LOL.
My computer has our companies firewall, so all the enhancement ads and threatening stuff gets taken care of before it ever gets to me. So it has to be something triggers certain things when I go internet surfing – cause this all vaguely has something to do with things I was researching or reading about. And in a way – that is kinda scary!
I would love to have seagulls in my spam folder.. but I only found ads of hotels and phishing mails to pull me into deceits and lies.
Seagulls in My Spam Folder – sounds like the title of an interesting memoir 🙂
Ha! I’d have never thought of a spam folder as providing inspiration, but you pulled it off.
Hi Nancy – I know – who would have thought! How are things? When do you get to see that sweet baby boy again? Send me an email when you have time – we will catch up K
I’ll be gone next week to see him and then his mother goes back to work. Maternity leave is already nearly over.
