By the pleasure of flesh and lust
The passing affection hinders and shackles the heart.

By the bottomless gorging and base consuming
The items once sustained become unsustainable.

By the greed of the thankless palm
The coin of ill-giving and taking meld to the flesh.

By the habitual pandering and untimely lazing
The body grows weak and the bones brittle.

By the anger of the clenched fist
The broken nails of forgiveness divide and fall.

By the coveting eye and possessing hand
The things once striven for are stolen and raped.

By the swelling breast for minuscule deeds
The devouring vanity of man bores his own grave.
