INFINITE SIMPLICITY, a poem for people on the spectrum
by Thomas Hoskyns Leonard
Are all traits that await
The human condition
As it defies perdition.
Is a child with neurotransmitters awry
Who on curious signals does rely,
Who stands the test of bullying
While his life fulfilling
Infinite simplicity is a girl on the spectrum
Who becomes a high school valedictorian,
By ignoring the taints and the taunts,
And handling the bad things which her condition flaunts.
