Ode to a Full Moon Loon

Outside the Tim Hortons in Chippawa was a character pacing up and down
He was acting so strangely he could have passed for a clown

No one paid much attention as he made weird gestures to and fro
At times it looked like he was trying to imitate Marcel Marceau

Scruffy and unkempt, this was clearly not a professional endeavor
I don’t think his clothes have been washed ever

It would not be a stretch to suggest he was on welfare
Yet he had the money for a cigarette, maybe even a pair

There was a Medic-Alert bracelet on his wrist
Tobacco smoke must not be among the allergies on his list

Not since I left the SPRM have I seen such a loon
It was no surprise when I looked skyward and saw a full moon
