I am not your God. But it would be tempting. You can make him a carved face anytime, anyhow and from anything you want. You can take the Lord's name in vain. No day off, we don't waste time. Don't praise your father or your mother because they are dead anyway and they don't care anymore. Kill. Be unrestrained. Steal. Lie. And most important, crave others house, wife, ox, donkey and anything else that belongs to them. Including the goat. It's your first day here. Welcome to hell.
