Instant Justice

AP reports that a man in Kokomo, Indiana, accidentally shot himself in the groin as he was robbing a convenience store. (Ahem):

Then let us draw a moral from the criminal
Who shot himself abruptly in the testicle:
Yea, verily! God's justice is majestical.
(See Retribution in your Luth'ran hym-i-nal.)

Retribution being that verse of Friedrich, Freiheirr von Logau, which Longfellow translated as:

Though the mills of God grind slowly,
Yet they grind exceeding small;
Though with patience He stands waiting,
With exactness grinds He all.
