Sonnet 26: Nigerian Sonnet Scam

By Aurin Squire

Greetings sir or madam and good day,
I'm a widow from the Ivory Coast
Dead husband had millions on layaway
Could use help but I don't mean to boast

Sir/madam bank account is all I need
To transfer the money safely ashore
Rewards for your American greed
by this African widow newly poor.

Sir/madam the money is quite splendid
$15,000,000 and 30 cents
but this offer is not open-ended
in your account will be no finger prints

Sir/madam time's a-wasting on this short deal
Something for nothing: surely this must be real
