That Damned Fool Dog wouldn't listen to his mother. The idiot didn't realize his father was right. By the time he left the nurture of home (barely soon enough,he thought), he'd tripped uptown, fell downtown, skipped over lesson's and heeded not the school's learning plan. He didn't bank his gains against future risks and competency advances slipped passed him barely noticed. He played, rather than applying to hard work. The weight of the world now heavy upon him, crushes him as a grain under the millstone. He strains against missed wisdom. He finds it takes more than elbow grease, and a perfect second effort to excel. Precisely, because an indulgent first effort was a left step away as in "side-step" in the hurry toward pleasures instead of a worthy right step toward any challenge. So the hedonist languishes in fleshly pleasures. His penis & testicles are his 1st, 2nd & 3rd concerns. He can count to 4. Are you his 4th concern?
