What does this mean? Spam poetry

I'm glad GMail doesn't block this stuff, it's worth looking at sometimes.


Only the devil knows what that froth-of-hell will be up to tonight. You see from the deck here they are hidden up the slopejust behind the shed roof.
A waving orange light was irradiatingthe water front.
He had taken Anthony at his word but tripped on the swordas he went over the side. Ali Bongo was dancing from the pain in his scorchedfingers.
Anthony, Ferdinando, and Ali Bongogathered about the carronade. There was a certain damp-coolness from the riverequivalent to cold. The firing from the town was merely by way of a happy greeting tothe long-expected ship. The distance from the sheds, and from the house on the hill to thedock was about the same. He counted on the confusion which would follow when theylearned that Gallego was no more. He stripped and poured several buckets of water over himself.
It was a thatched building of generous proportions.
Only the lights up at theresidence and a few drunken shouts now and then. Nevertheless, from the very first he liked Ferdinando. It was now time to think of his men again.
The flames from the burning shed at that instant leaped higher.
Yet he had somehow the expression of aninfant now.
Helet the cook take some food down to them. Certainly, señor, of course, with absolute cordiality, depend uponit.
His hiding place was evidently discovered once, for theshouting broke out anew.
Old Mongo Tom, too, had certainly made all the trouble hecould. So far nothing but distant shouts and the barking of a dog had comefrom the shore.
I hadalready made up my mind to that sometime ago.
Gallego kept it dismounted in the warehouse.

Holy crap, they've resorted to honesty.

But yeah, I think there are random-sentence-generating programs that fill the spam with that crap so it's less likely to trip autofilters.

Sometimes these spammers use literature samples from Project Gutenberg to look less like spam to spambots.

These quotes are randomly pulled from the novel Anthony Adverse by Hervey Allen (1933).
