Prayer to the Furies to Right a Wrong

I call to the Furies, the kindly Erinyes
who will not bear that justice remain undone,
who will not suffer the evildoer to go free,
who will not allow him to enjoy the reward
of his crime. Gracious goddesses, you know the pain
of a wrong unavenged, you know the wrath
of an innocent injured, you know the heart
of one who has suffered and seen the guilty
escape the judgment of men. Revered ones,
Eumenides, I call to you for retribution!
