Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)


Simon start each day with stories
Simon tell of journeys he had
Adventures luring the restless ear
Capturing shocked response with laughs
Simon relates strange occurrences
Conflicts occurring in pit night
Things bizarre outside the norm
Which are frightening scary sights?
Simon define events in vivid details
As if, He was actually there
Blow to blow encounters up close
Surviving all events without a scratch
Humorous thoughts of comedy
Pain shearing agony faced
Simon's tales will lock your interest
Terrors to make one hold ones face
Dramatic challenges in raging storms
Tender romance in gazing lovers arms
He speaks against injustice and wrongs
Simon never had a badge or a gun
A virtual giant hidden in a crowd
Fought plagues and survived diseases
Battled terrains all alone
I like his true story or personal lies
Simon's stories shocking concepts
Has tears jerking from ones eyes
Yet, it’s according to what
Simon says

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
