Sloth. Auspicious. Kissing.

Inspiration comes from everywhere. In this case, my inspiration is a noun-adjective-verb combination posed by Jennifer Grant, who responded to my recent Facebook solicitation for some creative starter words. Read on for the sloth-auspicious-kissing result.


Hard-working
We used to be known for this
But it has become acceptable
To sit like a sloth
Yet still expect auspicious days
To rain down
Lining pockets with wealth
And kissing cheeks with good fortune
All the while we hang from our trees
Watching the world move around us
Focused more on celebrity gossip
Than actually living
Never questioning how the system
In which so many are vested
Will sustain the masses
Once no more workers remain
