Simon - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Appearing at crack of sun telling stories,
an old kind fun soul named Simon,
stating his done feats as a nun to folks.

Simon lure listeners by said encounters,
kids in joy raids at him pointing with tormenting laughs,
tales by him laid out.

Simon portray humor in his stories,
him as a light ray with views dip in its mystic,
agony had in said betrayed efforts.

Conflicts spoken to thrill and educate listeners,
stated tales not still all the passers,
said restriction till in its fact by Simon.

Pain felt by hearers with their reactions,
acts melt interests replies displayed by eyes,
their belts pop out in facts grips.

I like Simon stated had been endeavors,
or misfit of its slated should ask if or do,
I like his related told lies?

Simon stories do shock the people passing,
tears jerked from eyes mock,
Simon see it not?
Lock given version wow.

All come to realizing of facts spoken to us,
its home said to happen to him had by him,
in Simon as him set say dome.
