The Two Questions


 "Not these puzzle the will;
Not these the yet unanswered question urge.
But the unjust stricken; but the hands that kill
 Lopped; but the merited scourge;


 "The sensualist at fast;
The merciless felled; the liar in his snares.
The cowardice of my judgment sees, aghast,
 The flail, the chaff, the tares."
