I do believe that I have successfully committed every sin one might have a chance to commit in the presence of temptation.  You might even say that I am rather fertile ground for the works of petty evil.  I have never been a particularly hard worker.  Sloth, check!  Mind you I am a handsome fellow.  So I have repeatably used my charms to obtain what I wanted and took everyone else for a fool.  Well, and as it goes, vanity and pride led to lust.  You see…those two tend to leach on to one another.  Yes, I had my share of love.  Don’t get excited.  Or do by all means.  All of it, physical and with purpose; money.  I tell you green is the color of greed and it suits me best.  And as I am standing here, angry at God and human laws, poisoned with the envy of the rich society whose member I used to be, I pity myself for it came to this!  I am ready to perform the least profitable robbery of all the time.  But why stop at the loose change?  I will have it all!  And I will burn for it. [Weronika Nossowicz]
