Pearls Before Swine comes up with a pearl.
Mr Mayor, members of the city council:
You love the rich. They make campaign contributions. They profit mightily from the system you support.
The homeless make no campaign contributions. They are victims of the corruption from which you profit.
They are the daily reminders of your guilt, judgement of your sin, and guaranty of your place in hell.
Hearing the voice
and going along with it
saddles you with the sin
of the one who said it.
While a burden shared
is a burden lightened,
a sin shared
drags both to hell.

Oh, and the criminal act of spending millions on collegiate football in the USA.
