The above from
"traveling", _A Dictionary of Haiku_ by Jane Reichhold.
For those following along, my original non-sequitur was from "Damned for 
All Time", from Jesus Christ Superstar

This is easy, but somehow appropriate:

Do not stand at the fork of the road
To cut down their fugitives;
And do not imprison their survivors
In the day of their distress.
