Nigerian E-Mail

I knew this guy who had prosperity
He had no need of loans or charity
He kept his money in a vault that was capacious
Which is to say that the vault was spacious

Then one day he received an email
Purportedly from a Nigerian female
It promised him a fortune if he’d assist her
He would have been better of if he’d dismissed her

My friend was rich but he wanted to be richer
His vision of the future was an opulent picture
So he signed on for what turned out to be a swindle
It wasn’t long before his affluence started to dwindle

And now my friend’s money is entirely depleted
Out of all his riches my friend was cheated
He’s become an indigent, he lost it all
Greed and a con man were his downfall
