Simon - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Simon start each day telling stories
Simon tell of journeys he had
Adventures luring the restless ear
Captures shocked responses with laughs
Simon relates strange occurrences
Conflicts occurring in pit night fall
Things bizarre outside the common norm
Which are frightening scary sights?
Simon defines events in vivid details
As if, he was actually there
Blow to blow encounters up close
Surviving these events without a scratch
Humorous thoughts of comedy
Pain shearing agony faced
A storyteller weaving his mystic
Magician performing feats within words
Simon tales will lock your interests
Terrors to make one hold ones face
Dramatic challenges in big storms
Tender romance between lovers
Couples gazing within lovers arms
He speaks against injustice
A strong advocate against wrongs
Lone rider outside of the Order
Simon never had a badge or a gun
Virtual giant hidden in the crowd
Fought bad plagues of times
He lead to cures for diseases and survived
Conflicts spoken do thrill the mind
Bizarre acclaim some don't believe
Occurrences yielding no restrictions
Events one has to consider to perceive
Simon indeed relates the very strange
Scary thoughts to the not knowing
Outside of the common norm situations
They who Simon during his talks trapped
Even adventurers reacts
Dramatic challenges he endured alone
Surviving events to tell us more
Blow to blow encounters in vivid details
Simon define events so sweetly
As if, he was actually there
Humorous thoughts enchanting my senses
Pain shearing agony with audience sighs
He speaks frightening sights
Which to me are Life?
Tales locking my interests
Make me hold my head
I like his true stories
Or do I like his personal lies
Simon stories shocking concepts
Simon will have tears
Jerk from ones eyes
All realizing its according
To what Simon says
