POET…AFTER (A) FASHION!

He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

LAUNCHING WORDS, SHIPS, PINK-COLORED SLIPS

LAUNCHING WORDS, SHIPS, PINK-COLORED SLIPS

A face that truly inspires,

Greed and avarice fires…

Dressed up nice

But cold as ice,

Does she care about what transpires?

Often idols are kept

Away from those who have wept…

A picture that’s true

Reality, will it do?

For those whose souls have left?

Women dressed up and admired,

No control over what transpired….

Men use romance

Justifying advance,

After brutally acquired.

(A different side of the coin, perhaps?)

WHY ARE FASHION BLOGGERS SO YOUNG?

WHY ARE FASHION BLOGGERS SO YOUNG?

Young women it seems to me’

Blog fashion plentifully,

Is most fashion sold

Aimed not at the old,

What’s the answer to this mystery?

Older models fill the pages

Of magazines for wages…

Is it that the young

Find it more fun,

To model for their own ages?

Whatever, I’m glad they are there,

E’en though I don’t have their hair (!)…

New fashions may

Come my wife’s way,

Which shows her that I care!

THE LIFE OF MUHAMMED (P.B.S.)

THE LIFE OF MUHAMMED (P.B.S.)

My good friend, “Zia A.”

Disagrees with fanatics today…

On P.B,S.

His viewpoint’s expressed

In THE LIFE OF MUHAMMED, portrayed.

Facts taken from the Koran*

And history of the man…

No compunction

Of religious unction,

‘Til after his ended life span.

–Jonathan Caswell

* Koran…also spelled Quran.

YOU’LL LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

YOU’LL LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

(In memory of Leonard Nimoy, d. 2/27/2015)

Our old friend, Leonard Nimoy,

Whose characters filled us with joy…

From black and white

To color done right,

He played both violent and coy.

He was more than an aging SPOCK,

But gave PERRY MASON a sock…

Brought to justice

Despite the insists

That the whole of his guilt was a crock.

Leonard Nimoy and NOVA*

Was natural for any space rover…

His vocation

Often narration,

A combination that won us over!

Oft portraying an outsider,

His career spread much wider…

Writing, directing

Oft intersecting

Weaving his plots like a spider.

But MR. SPOCK was the role

For “hundreds of years” extolled…

Through “NEXT GENERATIONS”

Various incarnations,

But hardly this actor’s whole.

–Jonathan Caswell

AUTHOR’S NOTE:Ā  Characters and programs in capitals (upper case) are of mostly his TV work…he did star or appear in a number of movies and other productions…not just STAR TREK!
