GATEKEEPER’S ON DUTY

They fixed the gatekeeper’s motor,

He ain’t that retired boater…

Earns his “mutton”

By pushing a button,

His old mechanism runs slower!

He can’t make socials at all,

His button-pushing runs through the fall…

When the bridge’s locked

In the down position blocked,

So trains don’t stop…they HIGH BALL!

–J.E.C.

AND HIS HOUSE KEYS!

AND HIS HOUSE KEYS!

Found the hat–now for keys,

Can anyone help us please?

They should be inside

But where do they hide,

I’m sure that my hat agrees!

IDEAS ESCAPING

IDEAS ESCAPING

When no one is around,

I hear a hissing sound…

Something’s amiss

When I hear this hiss,

And writer’s block brings me down!

I tried a plug in my head,

The flow of ideas went dead…

I do believe

To receive,

Must transfer ideas well read!

–Jonathan Caswell

**”The elephant and the monk,

“Who sat on the elephant’s trunk…

“The elephant sneezed

“And fell on his knees,

“But what became of the monk?”**
