[Solong]Occy (Versponse)

Occy
Isn't mossy.
(A clue to how you say it.
An invite to come and play it.)
Occy thinks he's what he ain't,
Which is strange or even quaint.
Answer in verse or in prose.
Let us see what you knows.

(OK, that's downright dog-
geral. I plead brain fog!) :roll:

What's Occy? A human, or
A dwarf or elf of Numenor?
Male, female, trans or other?
A father, mother, sister, brother?
Is he adult, a child, teen?
If he's not mossy, is he green?
Has he a scrund? Or has he learned
aught of himself? Has he earned
an education?
Is it important, his home nation?

What's Occy? A human, or
A dwarf or elf of Numenor?
A human being he is not.
That part you have got
Down right. The others, no too.
Good start, Jen. Good for you!

Male, female, trans or other?
Let's say male, though really n.a.
Also whether straight or gay.

A father, mother, sister, brother?
I'm sure he has some kin somewhere,
But in the puzzle we need not care

Is he adult, a child, teen?
A grown-up creature is our hero
His age much more than zero.

If he's not mossy, is he green?
By 'mossy' I would indicate 'old.'
Just not quite covered in mold.

Has he a scrund? Or has he learned
aught of himself? Has he earned
an education?
No scrund needs explaining,
But he has had some sort of training.

Is it important, his home nation?
No need to pin him down
To any nation, state or town.

Alas, my fault I do decry.
I see I did tell a lie.
South of Canada, North of Mexico
Is where he lives - USA, doncha know.

Does he think that being train't,
He has become what he ain't?
Needs he further?
Is there a murder?
Might a promotion
Correct his emotion?

Does he think that being train't,
He has become what he ain't?
I should say it was innate
Born that way - it was his fate.

Needs he further?
Is there a murder?
In this puzzle no one gets killt,
Human or other, no blood is spilled.

Might a promotion
Correct his emotion?
He cannot be promoted.
'Fraid you've been out-voted.
To be more he cannot aspire.
He's at the top, can go no higher.
