Here you will find the Poem The Sins of the Fathers of poet Stephen Maria Crane

The Sins of the Fathers

"And the sins of the fathers shall be
 visited upon the heads of the children,
 even unto the third and fourth
 generation of them that hate me."

Well, then I hate thee, unrighteous picture;
Wicked image, I hate thee;
So, strike with thy vengeance
The heads of those little men
Who come blindly.
It will be a brave thing.
