WOW! What a message! "God is NOT mocked." Simon found that out. The message is scarey. I hope any lost person reading it will heed it...As for the poem itself, I loved it. I love limericks and have tried a few myself. But this one was supberb...Helen
Now who wouldn't like a poem with "Simon the shyster, a lawyer in Glyster"? Amazing story told in verse.

Oh my, quite a different view here on this piece! Very 'interesting' is the word that comes to mind. Thanks for sharing this! Makes me think. ^_^
This was great, Gerald. One of my favorites this week. The rhythm was good, and the story even better. I didn't know that you wrote poetry!

I hope this places, because I really enjoyed it a lot.

This is creepy good. You know what's going to happen, but you can't stop reading. I like the rhythm and the way you fit the story in. Also the cruel irony that he lost his case to defend the devil. You packed quite a bit in this cautionary tale. Congrats on EC.
Wow! A man rhyming his way to hell. It hurt to know how it would end for Simon, but this was well and cleverly told. Congratulations on your well deserved win!
