A Slippery Slope

Parashat Yitro

You shall not covet...
     Exodus 20:17

That's it
God warns us
When you start wanting
what someone else has
When you begin to spend time
checking the other for fine clothes,
toned skin with no lines, three bathrooms
in a big house, all the baubles and bells
When you spot the gold teeth
and cars with all leather seats
When you want what others have
you're heading in the wrong direction
God warns us
