OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND

 

The Poet (we all know whom)

Came to work, we can assume…

Finding a young thing

Making his heart sing,

A special reason to groom?

He felt like the time to write,

So positioned himself out of sight…

By not looking

His writing was cooking

Without distractions of delight.

LIKE THIS JOB…NOT ALL OF IT!

LIKE THIS JOB…NOT ALL OF IT!

(I gotta come up with fancier titles!-J.C.)

 

A Site Manager came to me,

Commenting that I must be…

Pleased with this work

And love to lurk

At that place constantly.

Did I really love this job?

I don’t wish to sound a snob…

It’s not all joy

At that employ,

It’s a way to earn a “bob”.

It once was “my site”,

With a wish to work it right…

The account was lost

And I bore the cost,

Of higher-ups with consideration “light.”

The uncertainty of when traffic comes,

Definitely sometimes bums…

Folks tend to flash by

When one’s eye

Is distracted by hearing different drums.

At this guard post you cannot sit down

For long, with traffic around…

To stand in the door

With regs to implore,

And directions to where trucks are bound.

The worse thing about all of this,

Depending on others to piss…

Bathrooms are over there

So schedule with care,

Leaving your post you can “kiss”!

(your job goodby!!!)

REFOCUSED PRIORITIES

REFOCUSED PRIORITIES

There comes a time in life,

Or several times in life…

When things go askew

If it happens to you,

Problems will cut like a knife.

Distracted away from belief,

Getting lost in the world, to be brief…

I need to retrain

Myself in His Name,

Back to my faith in my Chief.

Attendance  at  church has slipped,

In crisis, my wings have been clipped…

Not being with the Body

Affects one oddly,

As spiritual strength dips.

Others may have other faith,

For me, only Jesus is safe…

My Savior and King

Through Him everything,

Was created for God’s glory great.

So I’ll return to more Bible study,

To revive my vision so muddy…

Then health and well-being

I soon will be seeing,

When I’ve gotten close again to Christ, my Buddy!
