BEEF AND BROCCOLI–CRAB RANGOON

BEEF AND BROCCOLI–CRAB RANGOON

Beef and broccoli, crab rangoon,

Yan’s* will bring my solace soon…

Encouragement by special treat

Something enjoyable to eat,

Helps him remember a happy tine!  🙂

–Jonathan Caswell

* Yan’s…a local Chinese restaurant that doesn’t use MSG in its cooking.

“FOREIGNERS” WELCOMED

“FOREIGNERS” WELCOMED

He was joking with “Kamala,”a man,

About how his fat fingers can…

Miss the right keys

With nary a sneeze,

Kamala just grinned…and ran!

–Jonathan Caswell

(partially fictional—he didn’t RUN away!)

LIMERICK OF SOLACE

LIMERICK OF SOLACE

There was a man who’d call us,

Seeking some form of solace…

He put away

More than a quart a day,

And spent a lot on mollusks.

(It’s late—I’m sorry!)

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

STEALTH FRECKLES

STEALTH FRECKLES!

I didn’t get many heckles

Because mine were stealth freckles….

Upper arms

Have charms

Avoiding kids hateful heckles.

–Jonathan Caswell

MISSED (FOR NOW)-!

MISSED (FOR NOW)-!

Pop-up showers forecast,

One or two threatened but passed…

Our nook

Beside a brook,

So untie me from this mast!

WITHOUT VISION…POETS PERISH!

WITHOUT VISION…POETS PERISH!

This morning, the blood sugar’s low,

Than it would normally go…

His vision a blur

Ideas occur

That are harder to put down just so!
