Not Really a Friend
Randy Mazie


I have a friend,
though I've not heard his voice.
He calls me a lot,
though not by my choice.

He's not really a friend,
though he knows who I am.
I only know
that he calls himself Spam.

Yep. He calls me multiple times a day - from different phone numbers. It's so annoying that it's good to laugh about it.
