RESIDENT REACTIONARIES

RESIDENT REACTIONARIES

We have one “free” table

Where folks put give-aways….

The Property Manager currently

Said it had seen the last of its days.

She said we had to put up ads

On the bulletin board to see…

And keep the stuff at home until

The board brought us remedy.

There are , at the moment, Catholic Christmas cards…

Small cook books, cookies outspread…

Months of struggle by the Manager

A return to status quo has led!

It’s not like in the old days

When ANYTHING put there’d be taken…

But imposing of contrary authority

No older resident has been shaken.

APPENDUM “C”…of the poetic work, “THREE WEST”. by Jonathan Caswell

APPENDUM “C”

(Of “THREE WEST”)

WHY DID HE GO “INSIDE?”

Why did he go “inside?”

Can limericks open that wide…?

He WAS depressed,

Overly stressed–

Giving up was long-term suicide!

Where the Bible says”hate your own life,”

He took it verbatim and right…

No one at church taught

To take as he ought,

So he’s lived most of his life with that strife.

Everyone thinks God is love,

His Spirit fills us like a glove…

If the church in revival

Had taught more Bible,

He would have understood God’s Love!

–Jonathan Caswell

Commendations to the flexible staff,

They’d be high on any bar graph…

This group was mild–

Others are wild–

Working both groups  a task!

Some staff had thicker crusts,

For some strict rules were a must…

Our hero was shaken

By his belt taken,

His pants had a down-ward thrust!

Some who initially seemed hard,

Later lightened up for a bard…

Ad lib singing

A ditty springing,

By request on “Nicole” on the ward!

The teachers opened many things,

To manage those frequent mood swings…

Technique that shapes

Not playing “old tapes,”

Where happiness gleefully sings.

–Jonathan Caswell

FOR THOSE FOLKS I WORK WITH…

FOR THOSE FOLKS —I WORK WITH…AND ANYONE ELSE

I won’t be distributing any poetry in any form, other than someone who directly follows this blog on their own.

Since I have this last try before termination at my job, I am complying.

I won’t go into details (My fault entirely) but they mean it.

There are other factors involved—not just poetry—but I reserve the opportunity to keep my own counsel and not go into details.

1ST CORINTHIANS 1: 11-13

1ST CORINTHIANS 1: 11-13

(opinion)

Unfortunately, when pastors change,

Congregations do rearrange…

The previous man

Some think can-

Not be suitably exchanged!

Paul, Apollos, and such,

Mean more that the Lord Christ’s touch?

Unwilling to learn

How a new heart yearns

They exit with a “thanks so much!”

–Jonathan Caswell

IF I FIND YOU NEAR THE RIVER”

I love you like my liver,

But if I find you near the river…

I’ll surely throw you in!

FRUSTRATIONS IN MARRIAGE

(Sung to the tune of “Grandma’s In The Cellar”–A REAL TUNE!)

Frustrations in marriage

People oft disparage,

Thinking everything should work perfectly!

Character building

Of which we are unwilling…

Gets under skin eventually!

It’s a sin,

Don’t give in…

Murder never solved a single blessed thing!

You were made to live together,

Grow strong in stormy weather…

Or divorce lawyers will get everything!

–Jonathan Caswell
