Influenced by the full moon,

Little old ladies seek action soon…

Pull the fire alarm

Not meaning harm,

But enjoy watching fire trucks zoom!

From my back window I’d see,

Pandemonium filled them with glee…

Every month then

They’d try it again,

The psychiatric ward staff weren’t pleased.

Why was I living so close?

All professional staff had no choice…

My Dad was a Chaplain

And as it happened,

My parents had help watching us two boys!

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?.
