Idlety - Poem by Michael Witkowski

Idleness in vanity
Is a serious witchcraft
Despond on slough of mares in
which gargoyling breeches breeze
With ease and temper thrusts shallow marks
of temperance running havoc in havarie
of sullen oysters. Ye shall not blink
at oysters' fate, where mares in
sulky shallowness daft
grabple with charity
