 Minus productivity Picture, "Muri wanting to sleep :)," by Eszter

You wake up and it’s late in the morning
It’s ten o’clock but you’re still yawning
Your mates are already off to work
But for you, even that sleep was work!

You brush your teeth quickly and sit on the sofa
Boy, even the TV knows you’re a loafer
From show to show you stick to the screen,
Chewing white gum till your face turns green

Then at noon, it’s time to take your brunch
And it’s everything your eyes see that you crunch
You eat so much till even your teeth grow fat
And you’re determined to lose weight by a simple chat

You hit the bed and the bed complains
Mocking your body because it’s never the same
You bite your nails and snore aloud
I guess all these “achievements” have made you proud

An idle man is a regular prisoner of boredom
Play and consume- that is how he intends to build an empire
And the folly he nurtures tells him his time is long
Truly, life is short but idleness makes it seem long.

Contact the Great Mother
Ella Bruce | Aug 21st, 2017
I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as Great Mother told me when she helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted Great Mother the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted Great Mother she assured me that my man will come again. She gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent her the money and she bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as she told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because Great Mother is so real and i urge you contact her now on her email so that she can also help you the way she helped me. Her email is Greatmotherofsolutiontemple@yahoo.com and you can also contact her with her phone number on whats app +2348078359876 you can also check and contact her on Greatmotherofpowers.blogspot.com Greatmotherofsolution.blogspot.com

This poem is, in fact, a bunch of twigs, that coil into pricks bulging out of the cushion relentlessly pushing stupidity out of me. Now, I feel nothing but a new me.
