Sticky Cap Sam

Sam was the man; quiet but firm, he loved
life so much and hated to see people
in the realms of sorrow's dark coloured tones.
sTicKy CaP sAm wAs HiS alTEr EgO.
His glasses would be neatly placed away,
such a calm movement, you watched forever
crash into the paint drying in the mind.
sTicKy CaP sAm wAs HiS alTEr EgO.
Look! Over there! Someone is now frowning.
And polite Sam would stroll into action,
though it took him eternity, it seemed.
Sticky Cap Sam was his alter ego.
