GINGER TABBIES STILL RULE!!!

Screen saver—what does he choose…

A ginger tabby to vanquish his blues,…,

Can;t have any more

Cat scratches infect more,

But his memories–those he can use!

Puss Cat, Ginger and Balim,

All names chosen at whim…

The first two

His wife and he knew,

But he grew up with With stubborn Balim!

Balim Yalson Caswell,

The Yalson’s had to back in Turkey dwell…

Our family

Adopted Balie”,

Every year about their cat…we would tell!

Balim, although gradually b lind,

Was as stubborn as his Caswell kind…

Went where he pleased

His last mouse wasn’t teased—

But ignored it–was it not on his mind?

SPICY SNACK AT 2 AM!

Came home from work and shopping,

Other than that–no reason for stopping…

some “Brown ans Serve”

He’s nibbling (the nerve!),

and gobbled all up in the offing!

–J.E.C.

 

GLAD I’M BROKE–SORT OF GLAD!

The days after Halloween,

Sales candy lovers’ dream…

Half-off and more

In any store,

Diabetics don’;t need these dreams!

DO I WISH THESE WERE BEERS?

Snapped open a can of MOXIE,

A passer-by asked, was it proxy…

For a cold beer–

Told her the year,

I stopped such orthodoxy!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

WHAT’S FOR SUPPER–I DON’T KNOW!

Had BURGER KING for lunch,

Our “no pickle” Whoppers had crunch…

Chinese or Italian

Food I’ll rally on,

Maybe just cashews to munch!

Cashews are out in the car,

Praise be–that’s not too far…

Something to drink–

Diet soda, I think–

Although THAT won’t go very far!

THE WHIFF OF SECRET DESIRE

Perfume fills his air,

Something wonderful there…

When she went by

He felt desire fly,

Up in full-blown despair!

For he could have none of that,

A whole pizza makes him fat…

Properly portioned

Might last him a morning,

His own dinner fell flat.

Samples he wanted to ask,

But wasn’t up to the task…

Each pizza purchased

By the employee’s own purses,

Would have been unkind to ask.

Tomorrow is PAY DAY,

When his mouth can exult in the fray…

A large one–no–

But a small may go,

Down the usual way!

A NEW SNACK REGIMEN

Sectioned celery suffices

As sufficient snack devices…

Put in plastic bags

Available for long drags,

The low-calorie high fiber taste surprises!
