one word shogun: lazy

i can't go there,
you shouldn't,

we needn't even try.

matthew will grouse
as he lingers
in the aisles,

but trust me
this one
too near the beast;

try him at

a later time.

And this is for "lazy"!?? I would say maybe "wary" or "smart". Why would anyone go there if it's brewing near a beast? Unless, of course, one is a caffeine addict braving danger for that morning cup of joe...

T: I would say something pithy and glib (and completely ludicrous) like laziness is the true mark of heroism, but you live with a real Black Ox Hero Prince and pithy inanity simply will not do. That kind of nonsense on my part would call out the Revenge of the Kraits.

I believe Mateo in the aisles is the true laze-moid.

Well, Joshua himself will be the first to admit he's lazy unless the situation warrants heroism, so maybe that is what the old saw "discretion is the better part of valor" really means...

I suspect that slacking enhances courage, storing up for the important things, something like slacking is the better part of valor...

Indeed, and much more polite.
