Utterly, Utterly Lazy
I can be utterly, utterly -
Tempted to put on my shirt
Not caring which route.
Tempted to not put my foot in my shoes,
But to bend the backs, break them
Or any way fake way to get into
Just ‘cause I cannot be bothered to take them
And put them on carefully.
Utterly, utterly is an unfortunate
Meant to confess the degree
With a light delicacy.
Yesiree, that is the real me
Under it all,
Everything else being shawl
To disguise and protect it,
And that’s the absurdity
Of being lazy.
Desidia (Sloth) -- Pieter van der Heyden (after Pieter Brueghel De Oudere)
"Sloth makes man powerless and dries out the nerves until man is good for nothing."
