7 Times Sin is 55: Sloth

10 Sep

He squarely blamed the heat for his inertia.

Summer wasn’t a time to work.

He’d doze under the tree, occasionally letting slip a little snore, while the sun raged down on a scurrying world.

You couldn’t really blame the neighbors, therefore, when they noticed his stiff body only three days later, the snores silenced forever.

    “Thar she blows”
    Again she goes
    Socking it to us
    Without any fuss
    Just have to admire how her pen flows!

    Another nice one. And I must add, Aunty G’s little verse is very apt!

    Piper: Here’s a confession: Sometimes I don’t see where it’s going either. 😉
