You would be loath
if you were me
to blame so readily
the Sloth

Granted the way
in which he lives
may seem pejorative,
to some degree.

Leisurely in extreme
at least compared with us
whizzing around
in a perpetual fuss.

In sweated labour,
ending up distressed
with peptic ulcers,
and completely stressed.

You must agree that both
the two toed sloth
and three toed sloth
have the right frame of mind.

They take their time,
and live a swinging life
from tree to tree
gentle and carefree.

No sin in being lazy!
Letting it all hang out

We are the crazy ones,
rushing around
seeing life
upside down
or even inside out.
