Cast the first stone?

Crime was caught in

flagrante delicto,

and definitely aforethought?

He stood in the line-up

and awaited his fate while

a silent and voiceless legion

crowded round his form

and cried out its scorn,

an unthinking contempt,

no particular forethought,

a predisposition to judge,

and no step back is far enough.
