Wonderful! What a great up to date version of the parable. Love the rhymes. The excuses are brilliant, though sad.

Wow! A delightful, easy flow to this poem. I loved the modern elements - paparazzi and tweeting, and the powerful message. Excellent work.

Even though the over-all tone of the verse is almost "light-hearted",this style and the modern-day setting serve to drive the Biblical truth straight to the heart.
