Katya From the Ukraine

I got this email,
sexy Ukrainian Girls
want to meet me,
life is short, it says,
find love now,
it’s wonderful how
love reaches out across
international borders
to achieve consummation,
click on the link, for a fee,
and there are photos,
Katya is blonde,
she smiles nicely and
has such a lovely cleavage,
she wants to meet me,
all I must do is
send her travel costs,
she told me in the email
& life is too short to wait
