What better way to express a view that comfort 
means more of a no less embracing indulgence 
than writing in bed, and it is so easily achieved, 
an effete consensus pleased by its sheer sense 
of opulent extravagance; but there is purpose 
and sanity within an economical allegiance –  
today won’t discretely leave by a back door or 
turn into an allusion of raging infernos, at least 

not yet - or without your say so; and that isn’t 
likely when it would demand more energy per 
Kilojoule than batteries contain, thus staying a 
blazing impasse where lifting weights prone in 
bed aches ugly as an overindulgence, but we’ll 
refrain while the words still flow
