MAY I INTERJECT

May I interject

An opinion that some suspect…

Judgmental at heart

But I would impart

Wisdom  that trend setters reject?

What is the desire to share

The latest in underwear…

Out in plain

Sight–what’s the game?

Are you trying to lose it that night?

As a guy, satin lace,

Is groovy but out of place?

Why advertise

The pleasant surprise–

I know, with the trends to keep pace!

Femininity in the open,

Are designers secretly hoping…

Planned Parenthood

Makes out good,

As result of a young man’s groping?

Ah yes, but it’s the style,

Sit down and listen a while?

Men will be men–

Do you realize you’ve been

An open invitation for his guile?

Yes, guys do think like that,

Canoodling after…a twat…

Give guys a mile

And they’ll make you smile,

Excuses won’t rectify that.

–Jonathan Caswell

FRAMING SPIRITUAL TRUTHS

At one time I was caught

In dispensationalist thought…

Spiritual signs

Were for certain times,

And for the present–just rot!

The charismatic crowd,

Would shout “tongues” aloud…

Spiritual gifts

Were not “ifs”,

But some One in the air!

Mainline churches, alas,

Run from the spirit really fast…

Unequivocally

The hierarchy,

Short shrift those sections till passed.

Pentecostals pray,

In tongues every Sunday…

Loudly they cry

To God on high,

And whenever they pray!

In some denominations,

Doctrine’s in confusion…

General behooval

Of passage removal,

Not wanting any exclusion.

Then there are Bible-believing,

Determined to seek the receiving…

Of God’s Spirit

 Power  to visit,

Upon their witness  and healing!

Many TV preachers,

Have tongues as regular features…

Spiritual gifts

Are vital lifts,,

To we spiritually-enlivened creatures!

Among us folks disagree

In varied possibilities…

But the Spirit we prize

As seen through God’s eyes,

Available to God’s opportunities!

–Jonathan Caswell

I’M HUMAN–AM I?

He thought himself that

Like a neutered cat

Till at work he looked upon a woman’s bust…

Then all neutering forgotten

and he didn’t feel so rotten

But regardless in his God he would trust!

CHORUS:

Rumor is

Life’s a bit…

complicated right from the word “Birth”—you know!

The Lord knows we are dust

and in aging start to rust

But don’t expect our minds to say so!

Some people say that God

Thinks humanity as odd–

Something to be cursed and swept all away!

But the Bible says–NOT TRUE–

That’s not what God will do

‘Cause the price to meet Him  Christ has paid!

CHORUS (ABOVE)

God sent His very son

to show how it is done

and how nothing we do gets in the way—

It takes a humble person

To accept the Lord God’s version

And take His salvation today!

CHORUS

God is in the form of Spirit,

Do all with ears hear it

And accept that our bodies rarely will—

So God alone

Makes a way to bring us home

If we just admit that God’s own Spirit fills!

CHORUS

So his view of breasts

Don’t preclude him from the Rest

Waiting for him by God’s own command!

But sensitively

No idiot he’ll be

Keeping well controlled his

Behavior as it stands!

CHORUS

–Jonathan Caswell

An apparent song parody of GRANDMA’S IN THE CELLAR”, at least I think so!

WHAT I LIKE BEST

Do you know what I like best,

Including how she is dressed…

Where does she head

For heaven’s Bread,

The sanctuary of God’s rest!

The church is reconstructed,

Historical display adjusted…

To fit in  a town

Of great renown,

Of western buildings clustered.

Maybe  it’s just for display,

The Spirit resides anyway…

If just one

In the Holy One,

They will be heard as they pray!

Symbolic of we and the Father,

With which most won’t bother…

But the few

Who hold such a view,

The Spirit comes with POWER!

STICKING WITH LOVE

Martin Luther King Junior,

Was of a Godly humor…

In love he fought

That Christians ought

To walk by the Bible not rumor!

Willing to face,

Human kind’s racial disgrace…

Christian “saints”

Who said other “paints”

Were not of the human race!

Battled until he died

for his Lord crucified…

Hate didn’t win

when it killed him,

God’s love will never subside!

How many would lay down their life,

For Lord , for justice and wife?

He followed through

As I do too,

Who does all for the Lord gains new life!

–Jonathan Caswell

PSALM 120: 6-7 AN OPINION

There are times I’d like to be under a rock

When arrows of hate fly by…

When  mobs shouting slogans are the ones being cocked

As a rapid-fire gun letting fly!

I preach peace and understanding

Of a human as evil as they…

But if they don’t get what they want this very second

Rational people are blown away!

Do you know the rulers who denied and ignored you

Are the very hateful ones yelling charge?

Higher-ups in the background. egging you forward

Only want their power enlarged?

“Progressives” don’t care about your families

Your finding jobs or taking a breath

Of freedom–they desire you stay dependent

And if desired–send you to death.

Raging at beck and call of professional handlers

Is not the way to be free…

Stop and think who you are really serving,

Will you listen to reason—MAYBE?

I call for peace and understanding

Not hate and blind fury…

Mobs tear down walls and break into disorder,

The reasoned among you better hurry!

On this rock I stand,

who will stand with me?

Will anyone see danger in the wind?

If no one else can vouch for a jury

Then civil rule may soon end!

An Opinion Piece–the Scripture says, in effect, “when I am for peace, they are for war!”

WHO HERE IS REALLY FOR WAR,

OR CAN SEE THE LOOMING DANGER OF RIOTING MOBS CAUGHT UP WITH ONE IDEA—NOT CARING FOR ANYONE’S OR ANYONE ELSE?

wake up you people.

–Jonathan Caswell, poet with as much right to his opinion as those being encouraged to riot in the streets—or trumpet hate here!

REDHEAD POLICY

Sensitive subject, this,

That REAL women find amiss…

Men coo

At redheads viewed

Or any woman dressed like this!

The point of this conversation

Involves object identification…

How much publishing

By fond wishing,

And how much remembering my education.

Cannot deny the Administrative plan,

Women outnumber men…

As hoped for

The blog tilts more,

Toward female ken.

Yet at times I,

Do wish to comply…

With inner need

Without deed,

To enjoy as a guy.

Fellow bloggers (women)

Say if I look–forgiven–

Not all the time

I do have time (?)

To focus on all topics given!
