An Ode to the Sins

An ode to envy
the ugly monster;
it's quite fun to harbor you.

A shout to the sloth
who keeps us rested;
procrastination suits you.

Praise to gluttony,
my figure thanks you;
obesity becomes me.

Thanks to vanity
who eases our eyes;
a world of plastic shimmers.

Oh greed! Without out
our world stops spinning;
gravity is quite crucial.

Thanks to envy, who,
in love, keeps us sharp;
insecurities are small.

Lust is bewitching
to the observer;
but deadly to the player.

Begrudgingly,
when we seek revenge,
wrath can only testify.

A little bit too much like a list. Find some interesting way to weave them together. That being said, I did like what you had to say about each sin. I thought it was really interesting, and I love the intense sarcasm. (Especially the gluttony one. :))

Soo good job, I really like your work.
