The Ten Commandments, each anagrammed separately.

1. "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.

2. "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand of those who love me and keep my commandments.

3. "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

4. "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

5. "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

6. "You shall not murder.

7. "You shall not commit adultery.

8. "You shall not steal.

9. "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10."You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

1. "Ohh, good afternoon! The Almighty's here (the guy who, by boost, saved you from a dull future) to plea for your good love.

2. "Never pray to fake, miniature icons (be them out of stone or wood), shaped like the bird, the fish or other animals (ohhhhhhhhh, or to that fat poofter Buddha), but to me alone; For I favor the men who follow the law and I doom the men who don't follow it. Just never be The Almighty One's foe, you moron, for The Almighty will hunt you, then give your sons, grandsons, great-grandsons (and so on) one wet enema each!

3. "No-one's allowed to say, mention, shout loudly, murmur or hiss 'The Almighty' (hell, unless he doesn't wish for a good life...)

4. "Do all the things you want in Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but love and revere Saturday. The Almighty One brought you the universe in almost a week then slept on Saturday; So don't toil or have sex or soak in a bath or eat or breathe on that day; so ask your family members and tell that to your menials, barn goats and oxen and even E.T. at the door or they'll be hit by sheer horrible hemorrhoids (Ahhhhhhhhh!), ninety blisters and real terrible body odors.

5. The Almighty hints to "Adore your loving guardians every hour, day & month - or die young (rot, unholy fool!)

6. "Slay, Lord-muter? Uh... No!

7. "A dirty motel? Cum shot?! Unloyal!

8. "Loot us? A nasty hell!

9. "Go lying at trials? Oh, heavy sin... See, you got to burn in flames.

10."Ohhh, you can't long for your nearby resident's sexy haitian woman or russian butler or stout livestock. Envy's no good, alright? His volvo is not greener! Ohhh, get a hobby, you moron!"

A verse-by-verse anagram of a song.

Alanis Morissette
You oughta know

I want you to know that I'm happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both
An older version of me
Is she perverted like me
Would she go down on you in a theater?
Does she speak eloquently
And would she have your baby
I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother

Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And everytime you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you died 'til you died
But you're still alive

And I'm here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair to deny me of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You oughta know

You seem very well, things look peaceful
I'm not quite as well, I thought you should know
Did you forget about me Mister Duplicity
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap on the face how quickly I was replaced
Are you thinking of me when you fuck her

Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me
And I'm not going to fade
As soon as you close your eyes and you know it
And everytime I scratch my nails down someone else's back
I hope you feel it... well can you feel it?

Mey Kraus
Sing a solo (with a tune, too!)

How are you? I'm well, thanks.
Your new woman? She's OK, except that
I'm younger than the hoe, you devil.
Not quite kinky in bed as you...?
Remember how I loved you orally at the movies?
I'll bet she sounds sharp.
Oh no! Is she already pregnant?
Poor fetus... he would be better off dead.

You see, the mad, voluptuous, bodily carnal knowledge deed alone
Was too weak to save me and you that time.
You sweet-talk the old hoe, but
Did you mention how you have promised me eternity, a high,
Even your life...
But you lied.

My return was to force you to think
About the mayhem in my life after you deserted me.
Aah, we've done enough goofs,
Now I want to say this to you.

"All's OK, quite OK", you tell me. How gleeful!
Did you wonder how I manage?
Have I been quietly wiped from your mind, you two-timing bed-fool?
Can I cut your ketchup-puke lunch short?
I was the chick of the past outstandingly fast...
Will I emerge in your head if she eats you?

You see, I am that easy ass you comfortly anally fucked day and night,
But I will not go away
Even if you will not see me... Understood?
See, when I eat a man's cock I bite on the condom
So the pain reaches you.
Does it, Sleek Joe?

A verse-by-verse anagram of a song.

The Sea

Flocking to the sea
Crowds of people wait for me
Sea gulls scavenge
Steal ice cream
Worries vanish
Within my dream

Fishing boats sail past the shore
No singing may-day any more
The sun is shining
The water's clear
Just you and I walk along the pier

A cool breeze flows but mind the wasp
Some get stung it's worth the cost
I'd love to stay
The city calls me home
More hassles fuss and lies on the phone

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

A Beach

Wide view of a shore
Wet cruise; glance at the ocean's floor
Crows eating
From kids' palms
I'm asleep
Everything's calm

As many finned things (now alone)
As "Ahoy!" calls in ships returning home
Daylight is bright
Sea is pure
A jetty's nigh, so we take a tour

The light winds'll send the bees
What a small price for the ease...
Stop. Have to go now,
Must haste to my 'Electronic Zoo'
So much messy business left to do

My heart belongs now
To the shore
City life is ever dull
I feel torn.

A quote from Joseph Conrad's 'Chance'.

Joseph Conrad:
"It is to be remarked that a good many people are born curiously unfitted for the fate awaiting them on this earth."

Heroic astronaut Neil Armstrong uttered a piece of history (he jotted it):
"Ohhh, a wee step for man today, but a big leap for mankind!"

[Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."]

An apt remark by a top artist, Michelangelo Buonarroti:
"Oh yeah, I saw the stone, I noticed the pure form of the God and just freed it."

[Michelangelo Buonarroti: "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."]

The top bard Oscar Wilde mused a jeer by pen:
"A rut? Hey, metaphor to death!
Sticking to a rut? The final resort of he of no imagination!"

[Oscar Wilde: "Consistency is the last resort of the unimaginative."]

We got to a part of a doctrine of hero Abraham Lincoln, a US president:
"Oh, they are NOT gratified... they just make up their minds to be."

[Abraham Lincoln: "People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be."]

It is a taste of pure poetry by leader Martin Luther King, Jr.:
"If a man won't die for something, then he has to be dead... or a couch-potato."

[Martin Luther King, Jr.: "A man who won't die for something is not fit to live."]

Famous jeer of editor Dan Cook (in item reported by 'The Washington Post'):
"The opera can't be through until a fat lady emits her aria."

[Dan Cook (as quoted in 'The Washington Post'): "The opera isn't over till the fat lady sings."]

One too-real idiom by that midget Napoleon, High Emperor of France:
"Hey, just take a picture! It is far better than a thousand words."

[Napoleon: "A picture is worth a thousand words."]

Robert Bridges

When my love was away,
Full three days were not sped,
I caught my fancy astray
Thinking if she were dead,

And I alone, alone:
It seem'd in my misery
In all the world was none
Ever so lone as I.

I wept; but it did not shame
Nor comfort my heart: away
I rode as I might, and came
To my love at close of day.

The sight of her still'd my fears,
My fairest-hearted love:
And yet in her eyes were tears:
Which when I question'd of,

'O now thou art come,' she cried,
''Tis fled: but I thought to-day
I never could here abide,
If thou wert longer away.'

Vacation Over ode

My holiday was fun
Yet I thought all along
Of alt.anagrams, the one
Group to which I belong:

Oh, RG and his winners,
Wise Brodie with his Psalms,
Doc Brash, fierce with the swindlers,
The lovely women's charm.

Gearhart, Tully, David, Mike -
They wow me day by day.
We are very friendly - quite,
Newcomers welcomed: "Stay!"

Tom, he attends the recent news
And last (and least) is me.
(If I left out any of you
I'd remunerate thee).

So, if you bothered to read it,
(I hate it too, I fear)
My fee is a wee credit.
Soon, dear friends, bye and cheers!

An aptigram and antigram of a poem.

Christina Georgina Rossetti
A Birthday

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water'd shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these,
Because my love is come to me.

Raise me a dais of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.

Mey K.
(A bit, divided as:)
Ode To Devotion and Ode To Celebration

Canaries skip beneath my chest
Their tweets accompany my pulse;
I am a rose-bush in full bloom
Inflorescence is glorious;
A glowing fish, I travel through
A lake so calm with water clear;
The heaven's skies are shining bright,
As my sweet is already here.

Make me a kashmir canopy;
Drape it with fur and violet hides;
Shape tigers in the garment's threads,
And lava flows and salty tides;
Sew ivory plums in ivory shields,
And knotted daisies within spheres;
Begin a day to celebrate -
My darling is already here.

Mey K.
(I've divided these lyrics as:)
Prayer So Harsh and I Sulk Alone

Black crows are eating me inside,
They peck away, these evil brutes;
I am a dying silver birch
With hollow trunk and rotten roots;
A gutted fish, I soon become
A corpse, as I was doomed to be;
My soul is sadder than these things,
As my dear half is leaving me.

Please lay a black sheet on my bed,
Then sprinkle it with ash and dirt;
Draw in it ladies, all that cry,
And men of iron, all that hurt;
Give prominence to pain of rage,
Please stress their tears of agony;
Give me a wish - I wish I died,
Because my dear is leaving me.
