Swampyville Moral Rhymes;
The following poem is based on The Ten Commandments. The best moral guide ever. It is intended as an addition to the Ten Commandments and not as a replacement. I worded it so as not to offend anyone. With the continous argument between Church and State (The Word "God"), this nation's morals are being destroyed. Faith is between an individual and their God and can never be a collective belief!
THE BEST WAY TO DESTROY A MORAL SOCIETY IS TO DESTROY THAT SOCIETY'S MORALS!
The Ten Morals: By L. Don Oliver
It is morally right to have, Faith for what you believe; It is morally wrong to worship, What others contrive to deceive;
It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we speak; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each week;
It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there should be strife; It is morally wrong and illegal, To take another person's life;
It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed to; It s morally wrong and illegal to take, That which doesn't belong to you;
It is morally wrong to utter untruths, For many it can lead to distress; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others may possess;
I've aways lived by the "Golden Moral",
Of everything that I perceive
To always do for others,
What I wish them to do for me;
