What Good Country Boy!?

O'Connor, "Good Country People" -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"When all of him had passed but his head, he turned and regarded her with a look that no longer had any admiration in it. "I've gotten a lot of interesting thins," he said. "One time I got a woman's glass eye this way."

A young man using a ficticious name,
tried taking advantage of good country folk;
he professed to sell bibles when he came,
but that soon turned out to be a joke.

He faked his affection but was very sly,
what he stole from women was very grim;
from one woman it was a glass eye,
from Hulga it was an artificial limb.
