Whitman or Spambot?

It's time for today's round of  "Whitman or Spambot?"

Was the following written by the noted free verse poet or by a subroutine in a server in Shanghai?
Sit on overlooking
The noble grace of bearing
With different people
With different excuses to see
One can not help but ask
I sing the body electric, indeed...

I'm having trouble figuring out if you get the best spam, or you're just the only one who knows how to appreciate it.

Whitman would have written, "One cannot help TO ask". So, spam.

Actually, I *could* help but ask--and I did.

"Jealous... all I ever get is incohearent ramblings about knock-off Uggs and handbags..."

Oh, those links were all in there, but I pruned them out. :D

PUBLISH!!!! The growing collection on paper. And possibly make a profit off'n the varmints. ummm...lessee..

"Notes of Revenge from the Bots Front"

You can invent better titles, but your editing is what makes it worthy of perusal. A profit from spam!!!

My dad liked poetry. I never cared for it. Sometimes I wonder why that is.
