The Decree

Do not love thy neighbor as thy self,
And never, never love thine enemy.
When struck, do not turn thy cheek,
But strike back with full moral righteousness.
Never, never give away thy possessions.
Never, never allow an injustice to prevail.
Never regard mercy as a virtue.
Never regard one man as your slave,
Or another man as your master.
Never look on the meek as heroes,
Or on the humble as holy,
Or on the selfless as good.
No man is equal to another,
All men are un-equal;
Therefore, give each man his due, as he deserves,
And be just, honest, and proud.
Life is work; do yours the best you can
And expect the same from every other man.
