DESIRED OPPORTUNITY!

DESIRED OPPORTUNITY!

You know he wrote a book,

Christian poetry partook…

The wonderful rub:

The 700 Club

Gets to take a look!

My marketing woman called me

This morning just to see…

If I’d upgrade,

Bigger image made:

To one-quarter page for me.

It’s also for PEOPLE MAGAZINE

(That image won’t be increasing)…

There’s less of a chance

My religious will dance

On their stage–but, let’s see!!!

And further, I have good news,

Those of us with failing views…

We won’t have to squint,

It’ll be in LARGE PRINT:

Until then, I ask that you excuse…!

–Jonathan Caswell

ALMOST GONE…ALAS!

ALMOST GONE….ALAS!

Those leftover cookies and Danish

Soon enough will vanish…

No one can fault

Opportunity caught,

With nothing left for you, Hamish!

WHEN TROUBLE STRIKES

WHEN TROUBLE STRIKES

 

Why do we run and hide

When purpose or direction are tried….

Not all of us do

But alas, how few,

Stand up with resourceful pride!

Why do some in some measure,

When threatened resort to pleasure….

To take up their minds

With something that blinds

Them to opportunity’s treasure?

For myself, I’m apt,

To not always adapt…

But think of my Mom

Whom I depended on,

To defend me when I became trapped.

Supposedly older and wiser,

I sometimes would still utilise her….

A suitable stand-in

Would my heart win,

But not as a chastiser!

I have enough, with my wife,

Gumption without knights white…

To figure out how

To settle a row,

Without pretending I can’t quite.
