My entry in a 419 spam haiku contest

My name is Jerry.
I'm from Nigeeria*; a
Student who can't spell

I am an orphan
My father, in the uprise,

Twenty-five million
In U. S. dollars awaits
My inheritance

And your bank account numbers

Africa is no longer condusive
For us to stay here
*"Nigeeria" and "gunuity" came from actual spam letters I've received.
