Eight Virtues

A practice of self control makes us mindful of earthly things

And moderating our appetites curbs what gluttony brings

In courage and in boldness let our purity reign over our lust

And let’s embrace a more wholesomeness to educate each of us

For by God’s grace and his mercy; we receive the things we need

So let’s be willing to give; let generosity defeat our greed

Let’s guard against our laziness by opposing idleness or sloth

Being diligent in our actions; working hard for God our boss

And with peaceful resolutions; let us follow a Godly path

Enduring all the turmoil and letting patience appease our wrath

So let’s spank ole selfish envy with compassion and sympathy

And show each one kindness with our friendship and charity

With humility and selflessness; where respect is not denied

And modesty is our behavior and we reject our stubborn pride

Let us fight wrongfulness and dishonesty by doing what is right

And let honesty and righteousness be our guiding light

Irv, what a beautiful poem about crucifying
the lusts of the flesh. I enjoyed this very much.
