Thou shall not lie.

Lie! But insist on it,

record it,

make it grow limbs and eyes.

 

Thou shall not steal.

Steal, but be clever

and donate openly to the poor.

 

Thou shall not commit adultery.

Marry, divorce, marry, etc.

 

Be careful of social diseases.

Blame it all on the devil and self weakness.

 

Thou shall not kill.

Kill, but with no witnesses,

or wage war,

for murder on the 'glorious' battlefield

is eternal.

 

Thou shall not bear false witness.

Do so!

 

Thou shall not rob.

Rob, plunder, murder

as long as there are laywers-

 

Excuse me!

This is unjust. We defend

Justice through the law.

Justice?!!

where is justice,

when each case has two attorneys

and each coin two sides

and so justice

and so freedom?
