Indolence!

Here’s the next installment of manners and etiquette (courtesy of the Goops).

Indolence
There was a Goop who lay in bed
Till half-past eight, the sleepy-head!
He couldn’t find his stockings, for
He’d thrown them somewhere on the floor!
He couldn’t find his reading-book;
He had forgotten where to look!
His breakfast grew so very cold,
This lazy Goop began to scold;
And then he blamed his mother, kind!
You made me late to school!” he whined.
