British Summer Time*



The sun has got its hat on:
Rare cause for celebration!!
The simultaneous signal
To disrobe across the nation…
The clouds now in abeyance
But who knows for how long,
It’s time to get near-naked,
Join the sun-worshippers’ throng.
Is this what other nations mean
By British ‘eccentricity’?
-The stripping off at the drop of a hat
Risking carcinogenicity?
The miniscule gradations
Of skin colour’s hue
Requiring dedicated hours
Of Nothing, it’s true:
Except perhaps a uniform
Of questionable style
Believing near-nakedness
Will genuinely beguile
As long as all essential bits
Are modestly concealed
As much for sun protection
As for too much being revealed..!
So don’t forget the sunscreen
Lest you favour lobster pink:
It may eventually turn to tan
But it’s riskier than you think.
…Just one more thing to contemplate
Among the preparations-
Don’t forget your waterproofs,
Summer uniform of the Nation!

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?.
