the problem of evil compounds itself
with each passing instant and generation

it's apparent that
"i was meant to be here
so we could meet"

corresponds precisely to
"she was meant to drown a few
yards from her home
and lie in the sun
with the corpses of her children"

the moral geometry is no different,
and accepting one proposition
entails at least the implicit
acceptance of the other.
