BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

noun: aboulia

an absence of willpower or an inability to act decisively

An Absence of Willpower

guilt rolls around a tongue, spaghetti soft

even with a name, truth’s holding out
aboulia lacking tools to task, can’t ask
'til now, and even if it did, they show
knowing what’s fallacious never cures
