If it's Tuesday, this must be Spam

More inspiration: a spam-poem entitled "Honor be to Mudjekeewis!" by Geoff Nunberg, which starts off:
In my in-box, every morning,Seems like a number of spammers have adopted a quasi-Hiawatha theme. I just checked my spambox, and it's true! And so I say:
Greetings from a slew of spammers,
Each, to fool the filters, using
In the header and the body,
Random lines from "Hiawatha":
"And the fierce Kabibonokka"
(Get your clearitol and cum pills); . . .
I live here in Hiawatha’s
Little corner of the city,
In the land of Gitche Gumee,
Near the falls of Minnehaha.
While I love trochaic rhythms,
Pussyfooting down the pages,
I deplore the spammers’ snitching
From the poet Longfellow!
