A-BULL, YET LAY-ZZZ

A man with hands and legs
Waits to scramble for dregs
Spilling from a cripple's kegs!
Prideful laziness!
Boastful idleness!
Foolish foolishness!
Joblessness is not a twin
Of idleness, for I have seen
A man earn wages from a bin
To be a-bull
And yet lay-zzzz
On a bed of damp hay
