Monday Poetry Prompt: Virtue

This week let’s write a virtuous poem. Did you know there are seven heavenly virtues to match the seven deadly sins? I find the sins more interesting but you should still post a righteous poem in the comments below.

  1. I watched the movie “7”
    Of the ways to avoid heaven
    My popcorn was wasted
    It didn’t get tasted
    All this on a date
    With a good mate
    As we left we were reeling in laughter

  2. The Middle Finger to The Seven Virtues

    Temperance rivals with yolo
    Charity veils sinister corruption
    Chastity cops technicality in the arse
    Diligence finds no place in fast money
    Humility runs a mile from self promotion
    Patience means Amazon vs of Amazon Prime
    Kindness shies away from publicised name and shame

  3. In case anyone needs a reference, the seven virtues are: • humility, • liberality, • chastity, • abstinence, • patience, • kindness, • diligence

    There was a young girl who was kind
    Her videos she would rewind
    Technology never stays
    VCRs went away
    Now she’s old and she’s losing her mind
