HE’S BA-A-A-A-CK!

He’s back to the hurly and burley,

Alone with his thoughts going squirrelly…

Kind folk did

Come to where he hid,

But retirement was too early!

He won’t go away,

Unless the Rapture’s today!

He misses the crowd

And shouting out loud,

To let folks hear what he’ll say!

Great cheers to the eighteen or so,

Visiting a blog readership low…

He’ll keep you informed–

His heart truly warmed–

For support you chose  to bestow.

Broken promises forgotten,

Being put off felt rotten…

Of you very few

I’m beholden to you,

For in compassion you were stopping!

A SPRITE WHISPERED

A SPRITE…whispered in my ear,

Where have our people gone….

Something called “Democracy”

They claim has gone terribly wrong!

They ignore us despite our cries,

They say the winner’s wrong…

They look at us with evil eyes

No more to sing our songs?

They claim all the voters are

taken by a plot…

They’re not happy with the choice

that the people got?

Even sprites and fairies know

That corruption is evil…

but will these former friends see that—

Maybe they never will!

I guess like Puff the Dragon,

Who lived by the sea….

these spoiled children are no friends

Of folks thinking positively!

How we miss our friends who were

filled with love who now hate…

When will they stop this foolish quest

and come to us and celebrate?

Poet and friendly to fairies in general.  😀

 

 

MORE TECHNICAL GLITCHES

The gmail is offline,

At least during working time…

I get it at home

On the lap top my own,

In the home wi-fi range, any time!

A couple of “Carl Gooch’s” on tap,

For when I get home before nap…

Or tomorrow

Some time I’ll borrow,

To cut the mustard and…ZAP!

If I see you in the Reader I can,

SHARE..normally and…

Use “buttons” that work–

Not go berserk,

But get it reposted as planned.

HE DID IT–NO EVIL TWIN!

Alas his evil twin,

Tried to implicate him…

The man’s “old nature”

In nomenclature,

Had influenced his whim!

Showcasing body parts,

Some consider arts…

But from which side–

The dark or the light–

The answer judges the art.

Removing the object in question,

Increasingly moral suggestion…

Is good for the soul–

The evil twins’ null–

Improving Scriptural digestion!*

–Jonathan Caswell

*1st Peter 3: 7 refers to wives…applies to all woman-folk, in the doing of Christian love!

EYES OPENED YET WIDER!

His eyes opened to truth,

He saw, alack and forsooth…

Eyes for detail

Left them in travail,

He was being, in fact, uncouth!

He wasn’t “on the hunt”

But ladies took the brunt…

Of comments sexual

Not contextual

But taken by them as an affront.

Compliments aren’t always,

Women are security-based…

Sensitivity

Is necessary

In not appearing sex-crazed!

(And my apologies to all I have offended!)

OVER HILL AND INTO DALE…

(a GOOGLE IMAGE)

Via local channels,

Little plots sprout solar panels…

Habitat

Is gone like that,

In woodland creature annals!

Every old gravel pit

And lots of the newer ones fit…

Being filled with arrays

To catch sun rays,

For energy profit.

Producing energy costs,

Much higher the birds lost…

Killed by spinning

Blades thinning,

Out enormous flocks!

But who needs all that dead wood,

Just “trash”–no good–

People vote

The almighty volt,

But never have understood.

–Jonathan Caswell

(An opinion piece)

“OLD GUY”

The old guy thought it routine,

To let the young woman clean…

He wasn’t watching

When she was snatching

Anything worth some green.

What he watched was her’s,

Captivated by her curves…

Being taken

By a girl  shaking

Him down–is this what he deserves?

Ethical factors aside,

He knows he’s being denied…

His kind of dreaming

Is foolish scheming,

Some days he’s fit to be tied.

–J.E.C.
