I got me some chips and hommus,

To make myself a promise…

To try to eat right

During work at night,

Not be a “doubting Thomas”!

I have the hot dogs too,

From a “National Hebrew”…*

Baloney to spare,

Greek yogurt somewhere

And plenty of carrots to chew!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Hebrew National hotdogs…reversed name order to allow the lines to rhyme.

THE POET-GUARD

THE POET-GUARD

 

He likes his reputation,

Of poetic creation…

An employee brought in

A friend with a grin,

Saying THIS IS the guy, in summation.

I offer for any doubting Thomas*

A small gift of verse with comments…

Five poems chosen

Showing talent unfrozen,

Wholly secured with grommets.

I hope she comes this way soon,

I really like to croon…

As if you didn’t know

My talent to show,

The prettier the better–make room!  🙂

 

–Jonathan Caswell

*Doubting Thomas…a cliche’ whose origin comes from the disciple of Jesus Christ who would not believe Christ had appeared in His risen form to the others until he could see and touch Him for himself.  See John 20: 24-29, in the Holy Bible.
