Analysis of Curiosity And Indifference



Curiosity
fills the vat
Torpor
drains the bowl
Languid sloth
uploads the fat
Slackers find the role

Curiosity
kills the cat
Darkness
hides the mole
Smelly cheese
entraps the rat
Ferrets find the hole

Curiosity
tips the hat
Prudence
pays the toll
Honest work
unpacks the bat
Leeches find the dole
