Canto 6. Neglectful (Jan. 2017)
I chose neglectful as the word for this canto.
In the original poem it starts out with a description
of gamblers wrapped up in their game of chance.
They beseach Dante to ask people on Earth to
pray for them, hoping that will shorten their stay here.
Dante then comments on the divided state of Italy.
