A boy at a pool party,

Thought he’d be a smarty…

Went to the edge

Of the deep water ledge,

His teacher saved the smarty!

A spiritual pattern warning,

More danger in his way forming…

To walk near the edge

Of precipitous ledge,

Slipping close to mourning.

This pattern in him remains,

Beckoning to sin’s stains…

A man once burnt

surely hadn’t learnt,

To avoid certain of life’s pains!

Acknowledging propensity

This knowledge allows him freed…

If only the blind

Take it to mind

And stop acting foolishly!

–Jonathan Caswell
