I am simply


Oops! That should be


Sometimes in

my silliness,

my brain slips up,

spits out a mess!

Switches letters.

What surprise

I often see in

listeners' eyes!

Still, I am so


that my old brain

can even think!

I once told my friends I was a Tom Fetty pan... What I meant to say was, "I'm a Tom Petty fan." I love when this happens; makes for great laughter and a great story!

Tender Heart another most delighting Poem and this one really made me laugh for reason's you will now be aware of.

I do this so often friends and family just refer to it as Simonize. My own one person language that is also often fond in the written word. One of my classics is "A Clock of darkness descended" instead of the cloak. When I was designing cloths I sold tons of Shrit's my poor accountant had to ring up and ask what a shrit was. You can tell I am tired, when whole sentences are said backwards So yes I provide endless hours of entertainment its all a good laugh

thanks again for sharing your delightful Talent Tender Heart
