A LOT OF SCAMS OUT THERE!

Beware of all those scams,

And gods who claim they’re “I AM’s”…

Saying the bible

Isn’t so vital,

And all Christian service pans!

If one SAYS one is Christian but not,

One is liable for judgment “hot”…

Deceiving Man

Is the Devil’s plan,

Are you a part of his plot?

Other religions taking our cues,

Decide to help–that’s news!

The wrongs they claim

Are often their main

Modus operandi, too!

Rather than putting us down,

Rather help all work strong…

Bitter exchange

Is beyond the range,

Of charity work and is wrong!

Based upon observing the posts currently available in the Reader, and the author’s own sense of decency toward relief efforts (the way they should be !).  An Opinion Post.

ETSY STORES/DESIGNER GOODS

Blogger-established stores,

Offer trinkets and more…

Handwork to mugs–

Things with heart tugs–

Neat merchandise to explore!

What I would do, I don’t know–

Too many directions to go…

Fashionable trains

Or scientific brains,

Or blessed Trappist bread to go???

And no…Caswell is not setting up his own shop!  😦

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!

SEASONAL VESTIGES

Do not cry for Christmas,

It lives within our hearts…

The elves atop the water cooler

And its wreath have yet to depart!

Orthodox Catholics

Celebrate January sixth…

Perhaps these elves are Orthodox (!)

Not wanting it to miss.

It looks like all the trees are down,

Put away here at work…

Poinsettia plants take their place

A minor sort of perk.

In stores…candy fifty percent off,

Decorations and toy sales too…

We used to go to Scranton, PA.

Where toy departments made me blue!

But now they’re up and running

Toward Valentine’s Day…

It won’t hurt if they put out

Some things for Easter, by the way!

INTERNATIONAL GAMEMANSHIP

Proponents of war are roaring,

Are we going to drop every mooring…

That hold back knives

When poked in the eyes,

Much better seeing leaders touring.

Complex webs underneath,

Actions and tensions are chief…

Reasons why

A poke in the eye,

On the surface, strains belief!

HALF-A-TANK OF GAS…

He’s down to a half-tank of gas,

How’d it go down so fast?…

Wandering ’round

Til connections found,

He’ll pay for his fun…and has!

A GARDEN STATUS REPORT

Here at work the gardens

Look fine while the soil hardens…

In cold air

The mums are fair,

The rest of the plants reach their life margins.
