661. Two serious defects

He has two serious defects:
Weakness and wickedness.

His heart is weakness;
His vital is wickedness.

His body says to his heart:
“I am your eternal slave;
I am at your command.”

His mind says to his vital:
“I am your eternal friend.
I shall feed you,
I shall please you.”
