The 7 Deadly Sins: A Recap in Verse


What follows briefly is a medley
Of the sins entitled "Deadly".

If self-conceit  is your main guide
And highest value, it's called pride.

And if you eat inordinately,
High off the hog, it's gluttony.

If you begrudge a person when he
Wins the lottery, it's envy.

A red-hot temper's what you hath?
The sin you suffer from is wrath.

If you amass more than you need
And want still more, they call it greed.

And if you're lazy and you're loath
To do  your  work, well, then it's sloth.

And last, but not the least, is lust.
When sexual desire's a  must.
