NO TRADE SECRET

NO TRADE SECRET

(I hope!)

The Supervisor went,

And mentioned the company spent…

To get three wafers

To here safer,

Three or more thousand, by intent!

The wafers from Minnesota,

Unattended not for an iota…

Were constantly

On somebody’s knee,

Then a guy met the plane for his quota.

We received the delivery,

On time fifteen minutes early…

Security signed

Properly timed,

Nobody has reason to be surly!

–Jonathan Caswell

VISIT OF “THE MAN”

VISIT OF “THE MAN”

They can’t say they were prepared

For “The Man’s” visit–they’re scared…

Not knowing why

They would face The Guy,

Imaginations flared!

They had to explain the phone,

When really someone WAS home…

Tough answering

By the fourth ring,

Sometimes they’d leave it alone.

Getting mostly empty air,

For leaving messages most do not care…

Except robo-calls

Who spit out it all,

For those things they really don’t care!

A great sigh feeling relieved,

That purpose was not as believed…

The Man would say “HI!”

Bring stuff stopping by,

So quickly our thoughts deceive!

SEA TURTLE BOOMERANG

SEA TURTLE BOOMERANG!

(from recent science news reports)

Cute little sea turtles beckoned,

So environmentalists reckoned…

Allow them nest

Wherever seems best,

So turtles get firsts and seconds!

Sharks eat sea turtle tartare,

Tending to move where they are…

Suddenly stark

The increased shark

Presence seemed so bizarre.

Didn’t those bleeding hearts know

Sharks like turtles “to go?”

If so—they lied–

Causing greater “turtle-side.”

And sharks less likely to go!

OUR PICNIC

OUR PICNIC

Stopped by sprinkles of rain,

Sun shining all the same…

Classic end

To meal with a friend,

The two of us quite tame.

Yogurt-dipped strawberries,

That’s what her waler carries…

Sandwiches, chips

And ginger ales sips,

For an hour and a quarter tarried.

Couldn;t go very far,

So never left the yard…

Found a table

That we were able

To gather along green sward.

Had enough and to spare,

Several neighbors stopped there…

Little dog owners

And walking aloners,

We had enough if someone wanted our share.

We prayed and thanked the Lord

That something like reason restored…

Not more greed

Be His indeed,

Letting American blessings restore!

SUSQUI-TRICENTENNIAL…UH-HUH.

SUSQUI-TRICENTENNIAL…UH-HUH.

Three hundred fifty years, from 1639,

To the year we were married is fine…

Caswells in America–

A little piece of clerica,

Another cheer for 1989!

Like the start of the Space Are,

Other things took center stage…

In Eighty-nine we married

And on honeymoon tarried,

Two weeks…in this day and age!

So it wasn’t til later

That I realized to celebrate her…

And my family’s time

In this U.S.A. clime,

Although for family it wasn’t a high rater.

I’ve collected Bicentennial  cabooses,

In N scale to do what one chooses…

Re-letter mine

“1639”,

Unless one caboose refuses.

Then run a special train,

(I have history on the berain),

Around my train track

And then run it back,

I run it every year again!

–Jonathan Caswell

PASTOR HARGROVE…YOU WERE RIGHT.

PASTOR HARGROVE…YOU WERE RIGHT.

Went for counseling to this Pastor,

To solve my problems faster…

His answer was not

What I wanted taught,

I politely stayed in disaster.

It’s taken a number of years,

To see he was  right it appears…

His advice to me

works I agree,

Despite initial fears.

The idea needed adapting

To get around handicapping…

I feel pretty good\

(Knock on wood),

Just needed the time for accepting!

MERMAIDS FOR REAL?

MERMAIDS FOR REAL?

Is it true these folks are real,

Although not fully revealed…

Animal Planet

Takes it for granted

That it can explain the whole deal.

Looking at their You Tube videos,

Theory and fact hang close…

So=called “marine ape”

Evolves off the  Cape

Of African shores they chose.

Killer whales considered once on land,

So too, say them of merman…

Theory aside

This concept flies

In the face of Creation’s high stand.

SO MUCH FOR TRUSTING WORD PRESS (Or himself)

SO MUCH FOR TRUSTING WORD  PRESS

(Or himself)

Temptation came out of the blue,

One slip of letters will do…

And yes—he returned

To be further burned–

But he wish it hadn’t gotten through!

Ashamed to be found in his weakness,

By someone who his kind seekest…

Traveling near an edge,

Slipping off a near pledge,

He didn’t run as he ought from that weakness!

–Jonathan Caswell

SASQUATCH AND BIG FOOT

SASQUATCH AND BIGFOOT

Have you seen Sasquatch and Bigfoot,

Not hearing anything…is it good…

To leave them alone

Undetected to roam.

When they’re barely understood?

On COAST-TO-COAST RADIO, Yeti,**

Have allegedly hooked up with Betty…

But no one admits

The Yeti did it,

Nor a woman with a Yeti as steady.

Unlike alien abduction,

Where victims get no introduction…

Just fuzzy memoriy

Of technology

And aliens who care for nothing.

Yet humanoid science raises

Opportunity for these crazes…

Few pictures appear

To support what we hear,

But the story always amazes.

–Jonathan Caswell

** COAST-TO-COAST AM, with George Noory.  Yeti is another variation of Bigfoot, in more snowy regions of the world.
