SCALES OF JUSTICE

It is not easy to sympathise with the victim
and not blame his oppressor.

It is not easy to sympathise with the oppressor
and not say that the victim was asking for it.

If the inescapable future is seen, however,
Verily I say unto you, they have their reward;
there is only room for compassion.
