The Big Bloated Idiot

I'd like to sit by a lake and ... do not much else; for that matter it could be a cornfield for all I care.
It's motionless, wordless and still that are at the heart of the matter; but the big bloated idiot wants to brand it's own peace and solitude.
Can you believe that?
He's an idiot. 
The big bloated idiot prepares a dinner for one.
"Bring me flesh and bring me wine" he hollers at no one in particular; his belly laughing callously.
He is a brute, but he's big and easy to get along with.
People say, "You've gotta love that big bloated idiot" ... and they do.
I'd like to say that I don't like the big bloated idiot... but I do.
I really do.
Shoot do I like him.
Sometimes I even give that big bloated idiot a hug... hoping that his sweaty, grubby embrace will do.
But man is it greasy in there.
It's all over my shirt and those new pants I bought for the board meeting.
So back to the lake I go; or to the cornfield for all I care.
I know there's always motionless, wordless and still there.
It's there where I can choose to ditch the big bloated idiot in me.
I'm taking a different road back to town. 

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
Romans 7:15

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Psalm 23:3
