Motion to Amend

To the powers that be
(whoever is thee)
This petition to you
For an amendment or two

The heavenly virtues
We’ll leave them  alone
At least ‘till our children
Are all fully grown

There’s a couple of sins
We’d like you to tweak
A minor adjustment 
is all that we seek

Lust between spouses
Thee should permit
Without which these partnerships
Surely will split

The next sin is gluttony
here we humbly express
Without it our holidays
could all end in distress

Christmas and Easter,
thanksgiving and such
Just are’t the same
When we don’t eat too much

With penalties lifted
from only these two
Those remaining five
will be easier to chew


Inspired by today’s prompt at

Imaginary garden with real toads



  1. I love this! Especially the one about gluttony stands true.. eat away!!🍮

  2. Luv luv that last verse. Nice tone of sarcasm


  3. I had a smile or two with this one... I hope the tweak or two goes through... :)

  4. Ha, you're a girl after my own heart. A nicely humble and rational petition; hope it is heard!

  5. Ah lust and gluttony...these are a few of my favorite things!

  6. I think we need to be a bit more tolerant... as long as we are vigilant against greed.

  7. oh, what fun in the tongue in cheek! *snorting with laughter in great delight*
