    And call ye this to utter what is just,
    You that of justice hold the sov’reign throne?
    And call ye this to yield, O sons of dust,
    To wronged brethren ev’ry man his own?
    —Bible: Hebrew Psalm LVIII (Paraphrased by The Countess of Pembroke)

    You who have condemned me, I know your kind. Your forebears poisoned Socrates, burned Joan of Arc, hanged, tortured all those whose only offense was to bring light into darkness.
