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.

 

 

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!

GOD HOUSE, OH GOD HOUSE!*

Little stone pagodas,

In some garden corners…

Garden protection

By spirit direction.

Not wanting any reformers!

For those who believe,

These little houses conceived…

To spirits open

Gardeners hoping,

Blessing s are on the way!

For Christians, this garden art,

Tempts those who escaped  this part…

Of pagan belief

It is no relief,

Knowing spirits here park!

Some claim these are ornamental,

And we shouldn’t be judgmental…

If one has escaped

Being spirit chased,

Getting rid of these is fundamental!

When I see these—will they be removed?

No–each one chooses spirit truth…

We can pray

You’ll toss them away,

But it is your choice and your roof!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Please note that the subject of this poem is the author’s own opinion—no guarantees that either the provider of the illustration or anyone else believes as I do.  My friends have their own opinions and beliefs. Not everyone may be aware of what these cute stone pagodas represent, which I feel I should point out–then leave the deciding up to each person to decide for themselves!–Jonathan E.

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!

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 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!

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

 

 

OF TIMES PAST

An ancient postcard emerges,

Prompting history’s dirges…

But look there

At cleaner air,

Except when engine smoke surges!

Today it’s an abandoned line,

The neighborhood isn’t so fine…

On a back street

Likely meet,

Some various crime.

A group wanted to run

This branch for profit and fun…

The winning project–

Walking trails I suspect–

In fact they may be nearly done.

–Jonathan Caswell
