GOD’S WILL…BY BEING OUTBID?

GOD’S WILL BY BEING OUTBID?

Trusting on being outbid,

Like Israel.s kingdoms did…

Hearing God’s voice

Means YOUR CHOICE,

And not on what someone else did.

If giving to God, choose that,

A double-minded fool is old hat…

Don’t wast time

Being put back in line,

The Adversary’s too smart for that!

Dabble in a weakness–he’ll take it,

Thirst or lust–he’ll seem to slake it…

always wanting more

What and whom you adore,

Sooner or later will “snake it.”

MY APOLOGIES TO MR. BOWIE

MY APOLOGIES TO MR. BOWIE

(And Herman too, for that matter)

Mr. Bowie’s an indoor cat,

Deterred easily by snow and that…

If he were “outdoor”

He would not implore,

A thin layer of snow is old hat.

When a cat’s “inside”,

Any outside weather is spied…

As excuse for the box

Behind door locks,

Clean litter will not be denied!

The first cat I owned had heart,

And access to a stealthy art…

With silent warning

Pusscat would be forming,

In the midst of a purr–a fart.

Silent cat farts are unique,

We’d had three cats that reeked…

They didn’t understand

That we thought it not grand,

Trouble breathing made it hard to speak!

So, most excellent Bowie, take heart,

Springtime will invade your park…

With pollen sneezes

Will come gentle breezes

To carry away any cat fart.

WHY HE DOESN’T READ LADIES’ MAGAZINES!

WHY HE DOESN’T READ LADIES’ MAGAZINES!

He bought a GOOD HOUSEKEEPING,
Caught by the cover photo…
Of Kyra Sedgewick posing
Like someone he wanted to know.

The Table of Contents sufficient
For a magazine slick and fat…
The perfume page at the beginning,
For him, it was “old hat”.

He started to shiver looking further inside,
It wasn’t as it once was…
He felt he’d invaded foreign ground
And felt like he’d chewed down fuzz.

His adventure wasn’t as used to be,
Entering forbidden ground…
The pictures were fine but he’d had enough
To put the icky thing down!
