ARTFUL TEACHER

In Art class she would sit down,

Asked us boys to turn around…

With skirts placed

We could turn and faced,

Our art teacher throwing clay down!

His thyroid giving him trouble,

A specialist called on the double…

She caught his eye

So she could subside,

Was skirt arranging the trouble?

All across the stage,

The redhead shortened his age…

Four or five times

She startled him reading lines,

His interest grew less with each page.

Slow to see slight of hand,

For a woman he’ll confuse on demand…

Attracting attention

Or intervention,

Deflects him away from taboo land!

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 strength...to 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 it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
