The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 227 - Poem by Flying Lemming

Lazy Ash would never dash he just took things slowly
And every day in every way he’d show lethargy
He’d give himself extended breaks taking his own pace
And when caught he’d just resort to lying to your face
His arrogance made him believe he didn’t have to work
He’d face attempts to speed him up all with a gormless smirk
Continually he’d wander off several times a day
Thinking that life owed him, in a childish sort of way
This child like side shielded him, made others want to guard
He lived off this and coasted through while others work so hard
A girl called Sam had her own man but fell into his eyes
And being kind she’d soon find herself mixed in the lies
He thought that he was popular but behind his back
His friends would bitch about him as they had to take the slack
Of the jobs he didn’t do, the work all left undone
And people fighting on his side were leaving one by one
No one could feel anger, pity in its place was grown
From knowing through his selfishness he would end up alone
