School, the worst. He never understood the fuss about qualifications.
At love he was lax, the effort made him wilt.
Father suggested the Army, but the exercise and busy routine was unconscionable.
Effortful words made him laugh or yawn.
He never took a driving test, fearful he might go somewhere, if he passed.
On jury service, he refused to judge, angering the foreman.
Society called him sponger, but he lived without anxiety.
When his heart stopped, he was proved right,
You can’t take anything with you.
