The 10 commandments of modern times redefined.....

A series of Haikus reinterpreting and redefining the sacred 10 commandments of Moses as per modern times.


You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me.

Real Live TV Shows,

create new gods every day.

Reel life Gods now reign.


You Shall Not Make Idols.

Mud Idols are passe.

Nowadays we believe in

Instagram idols.


You Shall Not Take The Name Of The Lord Your God In Vain.

Both wife and mistress,

in adjacent hotel rooms.

O, God !! Please Help me.


Remember The Sabbath Day, To Keep It, Holy.

On This Sabbath Day;

slogging away in office.

Is work not worship?


Honor Your Father And Your Mother.

Father is an ATM.

Mother just needs to shut up.

Cool, rebel Gen-X.


You Shall Not Murder.

Another Meeting.

Lot of leaders, no workers.

Time murdered again.


You Shall Not Commit Adultery.

Adultery case;

PA in hot, seductive mode.

wife in plain jane mode.


You Shall Not Steal.

Stealing is so cheap.

Modern thieves now get inspired,

copying others.


You Shall Not Bear False Witness Against Your Neighbor.

Tweet a lie bravely.

and tweet it so many times,

that it becomes truth.


You Shall Not Covet.

Sometimes I covet,

freedom of my father’s times.

No digital leash.

You are very sharp-witted in your criticisms of modern society. I've enjoyed reading. I've read several of your other articles but am limited by HP in commenting on them. Looking forward to reading more of what you write.
