Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

The New Commandments VIII (2015)

Thou shalt not download
illegal mp3s, neither shalt thou
pirate, nor purchase a pirate,
from a pirate
in a pirate outlet,
nor any thing that is his,
for it was not his to flog in
the first place, so saieth The Lord.

Neither shalt thou board a bus
via the exit doors
whilst thy driver looks not
toward thee,
nor take home pens and boxes
of paperclips from thy workplace.

Thou mayest take a dressing gown
from thy hotel bedroom, for The Lord
hath decreed that they
knoweth what goes on
and factor the cost into
their extortionate prices.
