Old Lazy Bones ©

Jim McRobert
Edinburgh, Scotland
2005

He had the art of looking lazy
the art of looking lax
the art of doing everything
and seeming to relax

he never wasted energy
every move done slow
everything looked simple
with things too hard to know

precise in every detail
he'd never do it twice
and was never raised in anger
he always was so nice

but some said he was lazy
and others could agree
but he would never bother
as a SLOTH within his tree
