That he was not at fault for Minerva’s fall,

But only tried to help her.

Poor soul so sunk in sin he could not see

He had broken the law human and divine.

Passers by, an ancient admonition to you:

If your ways would be ways of pleasantness,

And all your pathways peace,

Love God and keep his commandments.

This piece spoke to me because it reminded me of times we do bad things, in order to accomplish good.
