i am not convinced it's not spam.

And the cool thing is, Theodore, that I understand full well that this doggerel is not spam, while my software is convinced it it!

Both "April" and "May" are also proper names. And by random coincidence so is "Dawn":

I know I left a miracle behind
The Crack of Dawn, considerate, reminds
How good I had it then is oft the gist
Of that bi-lunar rosebud optimist
Inserted like a cold thermometer
Some freak, obdurate effort to enthrall
Comes plunging, all disruption to the hilt
Intrusive, butt upon the point we stall.
O Reuben, Reuben, give it to me rough
What ruddy-helm├ęd mischief dost thou fluff?
Whose cheek is but an aspect of thy face
Upturned so to accommodate the base
The Crack of Dawn along in daft repose
Shall be as to the pinprick but a rose.
