I’m rich and getting richer. Just today
another honest, kind, and trusting soul
has written to me from a bank in Chad
to beg of me a favor. Would I please
allow his bank to place in my account
an hundred thousand dollars? He had heard
about me on the internet and knows
about my generosity and knows
about my kindness to the poor and feels
I ought to be rewarded. So the check
is waiting for me. All I have to do
is prove I am the right recipient
by sending him the number of my bank
account and other information so
he can be sure the money gets to me.
Now you may be suspicious, but it’s true.
Last night my fortune cookie said that I
would find myself with unexpected wealth!
