The Lazy Man


The lazy man says a lion waits at the door
Snoring on his bed covered from head to toe
His family hangs on hope, and to God, they pray
For lightning to strike him out of bed and slay

His fears of lions and bears and all that stops
His poor soul from labouring and pruning crops
But his worries take wings when he walks out of the door
To the nearest bar where his imaginary foes

Do not visit him as he sips wine and cracks nuts
Nor troubles him as he brawls and returns home all cut
Falling into his bed and covered from head to toe
The lazy man says a lion waits at the door
