Ronovan writes #Decima challenge #33 A philosopher’s foibles

Let’s talk about Diogenes

who would frequently take his ease

by reclining in a barrel

as his only street apparel

to guard him from the Winter breeze

but chose to leave the cask unlined

resisting offers from the kind

devotees of his words who might

offer him shelter for the night

despite the fact that he was blind
