In the land of the bland

In the land of the bland

the Three-Toed Sloth is banned;

and the Once-Eyed Poem

isn’t easy to understand.

The Siloth

The Siloth said,

“There is no ‘i’ in sloth,

and if you didn’t know that,

then there is hope for us both.”

and went back to sleep.

Lazy on a Sunday Morning

I am

If truth be told

still in bed.

The sloth in my head

is running at half speed,

and I don’t feel the need

to get up

or out

of this lazy bed…

“Well, it is Sunday!”

as a lazy man recently said.

I bumped into a sloth

Today, whilst out walking,

I bumped into a sloth;

we were both quite shocked,

our worlds were literally rocked;

well, not ‘literally’ obviously;

but, truth be told,

It was brave

and I was bold

as we both ambled away

from each other




Slow Theo the Sloth

Slow Theo the Sloth

Slow Theo was a sloth; but, not just any sloth, he was the slowest sloth that there had ever been. It took him a day or two to just open an eye when another sloth said ‘Hello, Slow Theo!’ by which time the other sloth had almost reached the other end of the branch that they had both been on.

Slow Theo hadn’t always been called Slow Theo, once he was just called Theo and nobody thought him any different from all the other sloths in their forest. But, even before his first birthday, Theo had gained a reputation as being a little bit tardy when it came to exercise or travel – it’s doubtful whether he will ever as the four corners of the wood, never mind the four corners of the ‘round’ world.
