Lift high my banner out of the dust

Today I got a very strange spam mail in my Inbox. Not that they aren't all strange, but this one really seemed to stand out.

First, it made it through my spam filter by appearing as a simple forward. Inside I found this gem:

How are you,

Order Hudeea-Li,fe.

Hoo,dia-Li,fe is fastest and most effective appe,ti te sup,pre-ss,ant.

No funny taste in mouth.

I know it's a way of writing "appetite" to sneak through the filters, but I totally read it as "appa-tee-tee"; not quite sure what an appateetee is, but this stuff will supress it.

That isn't so strange. But the little limerick included at the end of the letter certainly was:

Of the Witch of the West.
That little time with lyre and rhyme.
Lift high my banner out of the dust. .
The Modern Man I sing..
The rest of us pinned the kid down on the ground..

You really have to wonder who sat and took the time to come up with this? Or was it randomly generated from some awful English-speaking poem generator the spammers use? I mean, what the hell is any of that supposed to mean?

And am I the only one who finds that last line a tad disturbing?
