LOAFER
(10/31/17)

not motivated
by money

by social
position

by love

Brother Bollocks
would have been
an actual monk

centuries
ago

now
he was objectively
an underachiever

a disappointment

yet he felt
happier
than those
that he knew
who were richer

more powerful

more
amorous

Brother Bollocks
silently accepts
their denigrations

tries
to look
remorseful

but smiles
as he walks
away

as he keeps
on walking

he doesn't
know
anything
more important
to do
