Stephen Crane

"And the sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the heads of the children, even unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me."
- Exodus 20, Exodus 34, Numbers 14, Deuteronomy 5

Well, then, I hate Thee, unrighteous picture;
Wicked image, I hate Thee;
So, strike with Thy vengeance
The heads of those little men
Who come blindly.
It will be a brave thing.
