He taught the Kings English in China,

A British accent sounded “fine-ah”…

Twenty questions (AND MORE)

He laid at my door,

Most of them answered in line’ah!

Unschooled in American speech,

This specialty I could teach…

Found a landlady

Pleasantly drove him crazy,

Changed his impression one by each!

His wife came for a visit,

My need to go home–exquisite…


He got from me,

How glad I was to miss it!

Our rooms had a common heat vent,

Any sound easily sent…

One room tothe other

In ways I won’t bother,

About another lodger present!

finally, he wouldn’t go home,

He left his wife and moved on…

The People’s Republic

Wanted no more of it,

I lost track of him, further on!

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?.
