A deadly enemy of passion

Hurting, taunting, crippling the indolent

A coded chronic chlamydia

Eating deep, draining blood.


A deadly enemy of passion 

Crawling round the purpose

Sprawling in disguse , webbing the goal

Pummeled with sluggish- destruction


A deadly enemy of passion

Shorting the span of prosperity

Aiding the growth of destrution

Fertilizer of difficulties


A deadly enemy of passion

Getting the sluggard drunk

From it bottle with fangs

Spitting epileptic foams


Awake! Arise! Oh sluggard

A little sleep, a little slumber...

Set array, make war, kill

Divorce the failure, enthrone the success


A deadly enemy of passion

Lose from it grip

Flee from it hold

Say No! To procrastination.
