WHEN COMETH THE AIDE?

WHEN COMETH THE AIDE?

Monday morning phone call,

Aide will be later…

When they call and change the schedule

It makes less of a crater!

I really shouldn’t complain

But that’s what poets do…

The service I had with a different V.N.A.

Meant their “one” became a “two”.

Weekends were worst of all

Five towns had just one nurse…

The thing about being homebound was

You accepted who came first!

DO YOU THINK I HAVE ENOUGH???

DO YOU THINK I HAVE ENOUGH???

Finding room is getting rough,

Do you think I have enough…

One more dream

Fulfilled as schemed,

Engines that run but don’t puff.

Can’t run more than two at a time,

Embodying memories sublime…

Reaching the end

Of finances, friend,

Over-spending is a crime.

–Jonathan Caswell

CONVENIENT CLOTHING

CONVENIENT CLOTHING

Three cheers for over-sized pants

That fall to ankles with a glance…

Pull up while hooked,

Tighten belt and book,

But don’t trip on them if you dance!

–Jonathan Caswell
