MAYBE A GOOD JACKASS KICK?

Trump said most recently,

Congress must see reality…

Force their spending

Like ours–unending,

Without taxpayer subsidy!

Republicans want to give up,

Business as usual stuff…

THEIR coffers full–

Why should they pull

For anyone when they’re ensured enough?

Check what I said earlier*

FEW POLITICIANS are pure…

Blind to our needs

While their guarantees,

Set them up royally for sure!

–Jonathan Caswell

*See my poem  FIRESSTORM MATERIAL–POLITICAL, posted earlier today.

FIRESTORM MATERIAL–POLITICAL

Progressives and liberal thought,

Have in common aspects of a cult…

What’s in their minds

To all else blinds,

Even the adverse result!

They dote on their reality,

Make up their own legacies…

Although not True

Nothing they’ll rue–

But blame conspiracies!

These political philosophies are built.

On principles just like  cults…

A central believe

THEIR  reality’s chief,

And all others are wrong  despite result!

Thus, a new “religion”

Threatens us with its contagion…

Are you Christ’s

Or liberal acolytes,

There is no middle decision!

Yet still be advised,

No hope from the other side…

Conservatives too

Are human in view,

With much to be decried.

You Christians out there beware–

Choose either Christ or there…

Christ is real–

Liberals conceal–

Are you wheat or tares?

–An Opinion poem…based on personal study and observation of cultic behavior…and that of politically “liberal” or “progressive” believers and politicians.

 

 

MODEL A COAL-FIRED PLANT?

Model a coal-fired power plant,

Environmentalist would say I can’t…

But history shows

There plainly were those,

So let those control hungered rant!

There are power plant advances,

Some environmentalists won’t take any chances…

That it might work,

And so they knee-jerk,

Against all but their own romances!

MY model power plant,

Burns alternative fuels at that…

Efficient scrubbers

Clean air for land lubbers,

Recyclable volumes–giant!

An opinion post—meant to be humorous–but some may find it offensive!  😀

–Jonathan Caswell

TAKES COURAGE AND ENCOURAGEMENT!

It must take courage to pose,

In plain or fancy clothes…

The public eye

(including guys),

In essence the whole world she shows!

More for a purpose than money–

Some responses are  rummy–

Courageous means

Fulfilling fond dreams,

Good reason to flatten that tummy!

Amateurs know whom they are,

Accepting themselves above par…

Not letting shape

Become like red tape,

But showing we all can star!

A PORTER LOCO?

A PORTER locomotive,

See the “shield under the cab,

No fire in the boiler

Just a steam pipe power grab…

The boiler’s in the building–

They hook up to recharge,

It was a local industry

That used it by-in-large!

I don’t have specifics,

But it could run compressed air,

Especially ’round ammo

It posed no danger there…

It looks like a steamer

Without a smoking stack,

A little switcher engine

On a local railroad track!

A YOU TUBE RUN WITH THE MERDDIN EMRYS (Ffestiniog Ry)

On “Timsvideochannel1”

On the driver’s side filming was done…

Filming seemed a breeze

On the MERDDIN EMRYS,

The camera looked firmly hung!

The last train to Porthmadog,

Which turned out quite a log jog…

Narrow gauge rails

Running through Wales,

Even a chasing white dog!

Walls sprung on one or both sides

Of the narrow strip where the train rides…

Many private crossing paths,

The more frequent  used have

A whistle post warning trains fly!

Sidings both old and well-used,

Giving riders good views…

Of the slate-hauling days

And narrow byways,

That the train softly chuffs through.

CLOTHES DON’T MAKE WHAT YOU ARE!—TERRI SAVELLE-FOY

(https://teri.com/)

(Ideas from a Terri Savelle-Foy Ministries TV broadcast on DAYSTAR…7/13/17)

Terri Savelle-Foy,

Wants women to employ…

Logic to see

Identity,

Not based on clothes or a boy!

Clothes and how one dresses,

Point to inner stresses…

How do you feel

About yourself is real,

And about dressing neat or as messes!

God loves His children so ,

Most don’t realize it’s so…

Self identity

Developed poorly,

In their dressing will show.

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

 

 

A CENTIPEDE-MOBILE?

A railroad car of the future,

Streamlined–couldn’t be cuter…

Underpowered

And not praise-showered,

But okay for slower commuters!

A motorcar upside-down boat,

McKeen cars were of note…

Needing wide curves

Sharp ones caused nerves

To snap as it yawled like a boat.

Nineteen-oh-five to seventeen,

The finest they were to have been…

Inflexibility

Hampered ability,

To make a big dent on the scene!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

E & M NUMBER 5

The Edgmoor  and Manetta  Railroad,

Has quite a story told…

Last in Steam–

A seventies dream–

A trestle break caused it to fold!

Old number five,

Was lovingly kept alive…

Shoving one way

In tiny display,

The rail fan press thrived!

Blankets  from the Lando Mill,

South Carolina, drilled…

Two boxcars

Maximum as far

As getting up the hill!

Coal and chemicals came,

In to manufacture the same…

Lasted for years–

The mill still clears

Blankets by truck–what a shame!

–Jonathan  Caswell

 

 

ABLE TO BE DISABLED?

His doctor says this he should do,

His social worker, too…

Would he qualify

When give the eye,

He’s not so sure he’d get through!

It means being out of work

A whole year, of being inert…

A chance he’d take–

Make or break–

If failure he’s left in the dirt.

According to rules on line,

He might not make it this time…

Discomfort and pain–

He can drive all the same–

And nowhere near the fine line!

He thinks: put up with his leg’s,

Discomfort in order to beg…

The question at hand

Understand,

He has things that he can’t renege.
