dusk arising

sluggish

 

 

 

There was a time
when in his prime
when he'd race down
and capture
the wildest of them.
Renowned and well
respected he was
the neighborhood's
snail catcher but....
lately he'd become
sluggish.

      This was just a joke. He went off snails in favour of slugs. Ho-hum.

      That happens when you take the protection off, you get sluggish.

          I’m guessing this was a metaphor! He he!

            This was just a silly joke really. He went off snails in favour of slugs. Ho-hum.

            Truly enjoyed reading your 'slow motion' poem. Wouldn't it be nice if we could slow down our busy lives once in a while to be beaten by a snail, even if that would make us 'sluggish'?

              Mines been slow for a while now since they told me i am 'extremely vulnerable' and must stay at home in this pandemic. Sluggish? - definitely but i dont leave that messy trail wherever i go (which isn't far).
