Injustice on High

Boethius, Consolation of Philosophy 1.5.29-33 (tr. S.J. Tester):
The innocent endure the pains
That are the proper penalties of crime,
And evil ways sit in the thrones of kings,
And wicked men in unjust recompense
Trample beneath their heels the necks of the good.

                 premit insontes
debita sceleri noxia poena,        30
at perversi resident celso
mores solio sanctaque calcant
iniusta vice colla nocentes.
