Rotund Stonewashed and Shiftless

It was Alison from Teachit that suggested I go to OED's word of the day for inspiration for my next poem. Well, thanks Alison. Today I find shiftless there. First definition = Helpless for self-defence; void of cunning or artifice. Obs. I especially like the Obs. Two previous words of the day are Stonewash and Rotund. I can see a rotund male in his stonewashed jeans being a bit shiftless - but is that enough to get me started? Especialy when I often go on about writing 'honestly'. How can I make myself care about this rotund shiftless stonewashed person?
I may be some time.....
