Nigerian Email

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Got an email seeking money from Nigeria.
Sounded funny, laced though it was, with hysteria.
Read: “Urgent help required!
We need two hundred thousand wired,
or we are shipping our World Cup hopes to Siberia.”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Got a message from Brazil about finance.
Said: “We did our part with four points to advance.
We lost to Argentina,
but we beat Herzegovina.
Send money if you want us to play France.”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I hope I don’t turn out to be a fool.
I don’t lend this much money as a rule,
but they said they’d pay me back,
and guaranteed that they’d attack,
and I had picked them for the final in my pool.
