This speaks to our situation, doesn't it?

What an exquisite little poem. Technically speaking, it's a true gem:

Fair and Unfair

The beautiful is fair. The just is fair.
Yet one is commonplace and one is rare,
One everywhere, one scarcely anywhere.

So fair unfair a world. Had we the wit
To use the surplus for the deficit,
We'd make a fairer fairer world of it.

-- Robert Francis
