I am Spam;
Spam I am.
Folks do not like that
Spam I am.

They do not like me
Here or there.
They do not like me
Anywhere.

They do not like me
In their mail.
They throw me in their
Garbage pail.

They do not like me
On TV.
That Spam I am they
Hate to see.

They put their TV
Sounds on mute
And get themselves a
Plate of fruit.

They do not like me
On Facebook.
They will not even
Take a look.

They close their eyes to
Either side.
That Spam I am they
Canít abide.

They do not like me
In their house.
They do not click me
With their mouse.

With filter and a
Firewall,
They do not see me,
Not at all.

They do not like me
Here or there.
They do not like me
Anywhere.

They do not like meó
Thatís okay.
Still Spam I am is
Here to stay.

I read the other two spam I ams and then saw this one! Very fun -- all different rhythms and emphasis -- you could do a spam I am anthology!

I adore Dr. Seuss and think you did a fun job worth your poem. I see great minds think alike! It's interesting to see the different takes on Spam I Am. I stumbled a bit when you mentioned Spam on TV then the fog cleared and I thought it was quite clever to clump commercial into the Spam category. Nicely done.

This was so good! Great job of allowing the poem to "flow so nicely" - right on topic and enjoyable.

I loved it! Good job.
God Bless~

A very clever and light-hearted approach. Well done.

I love this. You stayed so true to the Dr. Seuss form, style, but with a relevant message. :) Your ending caps off your poem perfectly and "says it like it is." :) This is great!

THREE ďSpam-I-AmĒ poems in masters, that is funny in itself! LOL Like the old saying, guess Great minds think alike. I agree your ending verse sums it up well, though one could only hope spam isn't here to stay, that maybe someday they can find a way to stop it. LOL Delightful read!

Wonderfully done! I loved it from start to finish :)
