Read Time:30 Second
Which soul would believe it
That I died before my birth?
I am the coward
That sold his soul for pleasure
I’ll rather be a coward
Than to toil the earth with unsteeled plough
Push me not into the swamp of hardwork
My bones are too weary to act
May the gods endow my muscles with rest
For I came here not to sweat
But to fill my free heart with merriment

I like the concept of this poem. Would have preferred the format to be less coordinated as I see a world where a lazy man would be too lazy to have this king of rapid thought. I see a lazy man’s though filled with pauses and unfinished ideas.
A deliberately and consciously lazy man would think just so…
thanks for reading
