I don't know exactly who I'm supposed to be cheering for - Pierrot or Simple John. Pierrot seems to be embracing life more fully than John, but John is more faithful, and tries harder to be good. I can't support Pierrot and his womanizing ways, but I can understand not wanting to feel tied down to any one person or thing. I like this poem, even though I can't wrap my head around it entirely.
