SOAKING UP RICE!

A Chinese man–maybe it’s true–

Said rice is the bulk of menu…

Sauces are nice

To soak up the rice,

My lobster sauce shoes it is true!

SHE FOUND IT TRUE

In DRINK OF IT WHILE YOU CAN,

The truth of it came to Joanne…

The tree was down

When she turned around,

All ornaments  boxed and stored away, per planned!

–Jonathan Caswell

(Based on a coversation with Joanne this very morning.)

MY WIFE KEEPS DOING…!

She’scrocheting a hat

For a neighbor whose been just that…

At Christmastime

Of yarn not twine,

A fine gesture is that!

–Jonathan Caswell

BIG WHEEL IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

They call it the Big Wheel,

It always starts with a squeal…

Its water powered

Wheel crushes flour,

People come for the corn meal.

–J.E.C.

WHAT WILL YOU “BE” FOR HALLOWEEN?

Halloween…time for dressing

Up in imaginative suggesting…

Of characters bold

And some rather old,

While asking for candied blessings!

–J.E.C.

TONIGHT’S REPAST…BUT FIRST…!

Before the pasta and sauce,

blood sugar gain or loss…

Measured must be

To remain healthy,

Not action to be over-glossed!

–J.E.C.

CAFFEINE CONTRARY

Consumers of caffeine strong,

Sometimes get it wrong…

Imbibe too late

Face the “all-nighter” fate,

Complete with great big yawn!

–J.E.C.

SIXTY TWO AND KISSABLE!

Today she turns sixty-two,

We weren’t sure what to do…

Filling the rafters

With happy ever afters,

She’s a two-footed blessing–HOW TRUE!
