The grieving poet was sad,

His news sounded so bad…

He lost a venue

To distribute through,

To many fine fans that he had.

He misunderstood his boss,

And thus suffered this loss…

To be in his shoes

This job he can’t lose,

Fighting back just ain’t* worth the cost.

He’s stopped just as requested

Ending things as suggested…

One or two know

His list had to go,

Inconvenience that won’t be contested.

—J. Caswell

*ain’t” is slang for “isn’t”***

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

      WELL…I often have been dismayed on the educational lack of folks, at least here in the North, and how the slang of the previous generation just isn’t being passed on, for whatever reason!
