The 7 Deadly Sins revisited in modern times...

In Roman Catholic theology, there are 7 deadly sins that spur other sins and encourage immoral behavior. First enumerated by Pope Gregory I (the Great) in the 6th century, these sins are often thought to be gross abuses that every human being need to curb to prevent dire consequences. And in modern times these sins have transformed into their more sinister forms.

And here are some of the sins of modern times….

Tinder.

Her bumtastic bod,

evokes passions across men.

Is it love or lust?


Yelp.

Don’t be a glutton.

Instead, be a connoisseur,

of lip-smacking food.


Linkedin.

Corporate ladder;

Greedy people don’t climb steps.

They use connections.


Netflix.

Don’t call me lazy.

I am a couch potato,

in deep thinking mode.


Twitter.

Don’t incur my wrath.

I can unleash countless trolls,

destroying your peace.


Facebook.

Vacation pictures;

his friends turn green with envy.

Manufactured fame.


Instagram.

Flamboyantly proud;

My translucent, perfect face.

I am a diva.
