The first in a series on The Ten Commandments: Number One

Here is the First Commandment, of the Ten. Most likely, it isn't necessary to capitalize all the words in "First Commandment," yet I do anyway. And when referencing them all, as in 10, I also write "Ten." Shows you something about my attitude and what I have been taught.

In Thunder and stone...
by Peter Menkin

To be set free
by stones:

First Commandment:
Have no other Gods but me.

Could the thunder
on Mount Sinai have
said something when

Moses came down?
I am your God,
you are my people.

Did trumpets sound?
Light was there around
Moses. Let me say
the words,

Friend of God.
Living words.
