Gluttony and Sloth: hammer and chisel

You eat too much and lead a sedentary lifestyle. You are fat and weak. These things bring you shame, there on your body, displayed for all the world to see, are the choices you made.

You chose to indulge, to enjoy, to sprawl out in comfort and relax. You gave in time and time again. You revel in the feelings of naughtiness that succumbing to your passions brings – when you give in, you are proud of your defiance against “ought” and “should”.

But when time comes to display the fruits of your choices, then you regret, then you are full of shame for the visceral joys that you so gleefully selected.
Time, and time, again.
