Thanks for this, James. I hadn't seen it before.

Most poetry about injustice says, "Those people are terrible. Glad I'm not like them." This one says, "Those people are terrible, and I'm just like them. Glad I realize it, so I can keep an eye on myself."

I [...] would have cast, I know,

Yep, every bit as deadly as solid basalt.
