SPAM Call #1 from ESSG

Spam Call #1  From ESSG


Note; This is not a Poem but an imaginary dialogue.

More to come despite what anyone says.


Hello, We are calling from a relatively new charity

that we know you will want to contri-

It said EESG on the phone and-

Oh. ESSG stands for the wait for it

Ebeneezer Scrooge Support Group to

“put the Humbug back in the Holidays”

But I thought he was discredited-

Fake news and bad pub, my man-

Eb had the right ideas but the wrong delivery

Look, do you feel bright and cheery right now?

If you do, you’re in the silent majority 

Most of us would rather just go about our business

and not be told to be hopeful and cheery

and there will be an end to winter and 

we may be alive to see it-

Where do I send the check?
