As the tedium of an insipid existence
Threatened to wear me down one day
I realized my self-imposed insistence
On a rigid routine could bring trouble my way
Of monotony, I’d read, one should beware
The mother of all deadly sins it can be
I see how it can catch someone unaware,
Presenting a distorted perception of reality
It could propel one into danger’s widespread arms
Spur forbidden, amorous thoughts of infidelity
One may be led to crime, lured by imaginary charms
Breaking monotony can test one’s integrity..
Therefore should you stuck in a rut feel
Face the monotony as soon as you can
Procrastinate, and the forbidden fruit will gain more appeal
And definitely derange your best-laid plan.
