Keep Aloof From All Forms Of Adultery Poem by Edward Kofi Louis


Lust!
You shall not steal;
Nor deal falsely;
Nor lie to one another.
Lust!
You must not let your livestock breed with another kind;
Breed, reed!
Like the youth from the ghetto.
Lust!
You shall not cut your bodies for the dead,
Nor, put tattoo marks upon yourselves;
Lust!
Harlotry leads the land to become more wicked;
Lust!
With mediums and familiar sirits;
In the land of your muse.
Lust!
Keep aloof from all forms of adultery;
And, consecrate and sanctify yourselves and be holy.
