John Sensele Poems

Handle me with gentleness
Because I'm your better half
Sent from on high
To swallow flak on your behalf
And lengthen your neck like
The giraffe's and help cut out chaff.
Handle me with care,
Affection and understanding
For me to fashion
With you a life
Filled with joy, honey and passion.
Handle me with respect
So that I bring the best
Out of your life
To hasten your quest
For peace of mind and rest
That you earlier expressed.
Sisters and brothers you belong together
Although you pray, mostly you play
To teach, to reach, to fetch one another
Even when your love groove you delay.
Together you sit, you eat, you study
You talk to them and you poke fun
At your mom who's your bosom buddy
And dear pop likes your witty pun.
