The Latest Decalogue
1 Thou shalt have one God only; who
2 Would be at the expense of two?
3 No graven images may be
4 Worshipp'd, except the currency:
5 Swear not at all; for, for thy curse
6 Thine enemy is none the worse:
7 At church on Sunday to attend
8 Will serve to keep the world thy friend:
9 Honour thy parents; that is, all
10 From whom advancement may befall:
11 Thou shalt not kill; but need'st not strive
12 Officiously to keep alive:
13 Do not adultery commit;
14 Advantage rarely comes of it:
15 Thou shalt not steal; an empty feat,
16 When it's so lucrative to cheat:
17 Bear not false witness; let the lie
18 Have time on its own wings to fly:
19 Thou shalt not covet; but tradition
20 Approves all forms of competition.
