Bjorn's given words:
dawdle - to move slowly, languidly, or saunter.
frankincense - an aromatic gum resin for perfumes
noel - the Christmas season; yuletide.
manger - trough or an open box in which feed for livestock is placed.
binnacle - a housing for a ship's compass and a lamp
kafkaesque - characterized by surreal distortion and a sense of impending danger
pachyderm - large, thick-skinned, mammals such as the elephant, rhinoceros
Not utterly concerned of life’s challenges
nor life’s problems
To nonchalantly dawdle pachyderm like
He moved ever so slowly
No sense of urgency
Nor a kafkaesque feel was apparent
What a blessed soul to stomp about the earth
Heard say he was basking in wealth
at one time
Gave them away
on account of the noel festivities mostly
Now housed in a cubicle of a shelter
He got along he survived
An eccentric purchasing items not readily needed
Threw them away in a manger upon reaching home
That he did often times
A binnacle, a crate of frankincense and a host of others
The proprietor at the Pink Shop could just observe
when he made his purchases
shaking his head not really stopping him
Man must earn a living too, right?
