In this huge cauldron [the inner city], inestimable natural gifts, wisdom, love, music, science, poetry are stamped down and left to boil with the dregs of an elementally corrupted nature, and thousands upon thousands of souls are destroyed by vice and misery and degradation, obliterated, wiped out, washed from the register of the living, dehumanized.

You call me Master and obey me not, You call me Light and see me not, You call me the Way and walk not, You call me Life and desire me not, You call me Wise and follow me not, You call me Fair and love me not, You call me Rich and ask me not, You call me Gracious and trust me not, You call me Noble and serve me not, You call me Mighty and honor me not, You call me Just and fear me not, If I condemn you, Blame Me Not.

use as: "be sure your sin will find you out" Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies arrested Steven Smiley, 39, in March and charged him as thee one who, just acting on his "fascination with explosives" (as one deputy described it), released plastic trash bags filled with helium into the air, with burning flares and explosive powder attached, so that when the flare burned out, the bag would explode like a small bomb. Smiley apparently had no idea where the bags would land and, according to deputies, didn't seem to care. One, however, landed on the roof of a sheriff's substation three miles from Smiley's home and exploded, but no one was hurt. [Edmonton Journal-AP, 3-17-01]
