Comparing myself with you-all,

When I’m down is my downfall…

Not often erudite

Or given to fancy flight,

Plodding verses seem the least after all!

Who really takes a limerick seriously,

When other styles rapture imperiously…

A low form of art

From the old balding fart,

He thinks himself troglodyte-like…merely!

And then rising worthlessness,

His friends refuse his ugliness…

It’s not him—

He’s caught a bad wind–

Abandon this silliness!

Love showers in torrents down,

Often when he’s around…


Bringing folks together,

In love is where he’s found! ❤

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?.
