Psalm 1, a new translation


Blessed is the man
who doesn't stick his neck out,
doesn't think for himself,
doesn't revere anything.
But he laughs on cue
while watching TV day and night.
He is like everybody else.
In all that he does, he gets by.
The believers are not so,
they don't move with the times.
Therefore, the believers will not stand
in the court of human approval,
nor Christians at the best parties in town.
For who's to say what is right,
and doesn't everybody go to heaven?
