The Couch Potato’s Creed

The Couch Potato’s Creed

Though he who hesitates is lost,
impetuosity has its cost.
You should look before you leap,
because still waters might run deep.
Though early birds might get the worm,
rash actions trip up the infirm.

So all-in-all I think it’s better
if you aren’t a go-getter.
I guess the moral to this tale
is lest you lose or lest you flail,
you’re up against the proverbial wall.
It’s best you do nothing at all!

I’ve discovered an interesting fact about Morrie.  He frequently sleeps with his eyes wide open!  In the above photo, he’s on the sofa, but I snapped the below photos one morning when he had usurped my bed as well:

The boy knows how to make himself comfortable.

The prompt today was “hesitate.”

      It is what the poem is about..Just meant in fun as Morrie is only a couch potato half of the time. He has more energy at play than any creature I’ve ever seen. He would chase a ball until he fell dead from exhaustion. He just furnished such a good illustration for the tongue-in-cheek poem. Sort of “Darned if we do and darned if we don’t!”
