THE MESSY’S LAMENT

THE MESSY’S LAMENT

Given some verses to read,

From another poet indeed…

He can’t find the swag

In his loaded work bag,

Which he’ll clean…out of need!

–Jonathan Caswell

ONE OF THOSE TIMES…!

ONE OF THOSE TIMES…!

 

Circumstances almost spoiled it,

He plugged his host’s main toilet…

He flushed and plunged

And finally expunged

The embarrassment of the soil in it.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

STAR POWER

STAR POWER

 

His wife has her favorite actors,

While actresses are his thing…

Sometimes they agree on who is key

While other times arguments ring.

When seeing older programs

His heart may flutter until…

He realizes those ladies,

Are older than him, still!

She seems to have a handle

On which actors she was sweet on…

But she realizes the difference,

Of memories of which she is fond.

He’s reticent in listing

All of the girls he found nice…

He got so many refusals,

That he almost never asked twice.

Certain memories kept to himself

He may never share…

Those are the most embarrassing,

That won’t be openly aired.

They sit and watch old movies

And TV shows for hours…

They each have their favorite persons,

Now wilted and gone like flowers.
