All the Seven Deadly Sins

Full Text

1 All the Seven Deadly Sins come to visit now and then
Really don't want them to stay, but a short little chat is okay.

2 WRATH's the one I fear the most. Angry even over toast.
Spewing out contempt all day. How I wish it would just go away.

3 GLUTTONY is kind of sweet if it has enough to eat
Had nine donuts on a plate. I took one, turned my head, it took eight.

4 ENVY has no beef with me. Stuff I have is almost free
But with those with wealth galore, it obsesses to have even more.

5 PRIDE comes singing to us all: ""Mirror, mirror on the wall.""
Not content that this will do, we're requested to all sing it too.

6 GREED is always worth a laugh. Once I cut an orange in half.
"Greed, there's one for me and you."" Greed replied: ""Why take one when there's two?"

7 SLOTH just sits there on its butt. Half the time it won't show up.
Tried to fill it with delight. It just sat there and grumbled ""Yea, right"".

8 LUST is in a diff'rent league. I have always been intrigued.
But unfortunately, Lust has not been intrigued with me.

9 "All the Seven Deadly Sins come to visit now and then
Really don't want them to stay, but a short little chat is okay.
