THURSDAY MORNING

THURSDAY MORNING

Pat came in and took

Away all her dish towels…

When the guys clean appartments

And use hers she just howls.

I was up early yet,

to write my poetry…

Had an idea to offer repentance

And the Way to eternity!

Joanne is up and in–

Such a hard-working girl…

Put her lunch in the frige by my side

And all is right with the world!

–Jonathan Caswell

AND NOW…

AND NOW…

We got the ultimatum,

Practically verbatim…

Clean up the mess

Or, no guess,

Eviction by administration!

Why…always it takes a crisis,

For me to face what suffices…

We have the weekend

For help from our friends,

This time both chops and dices.

Many possessions held dear

Must be thrown out of here…

The apartment cleaned

And we’ll be redeemed,

The process grips us with fear!

–Jonathan Caswell
