Good Tort Law Poetry (Specifically About Foreseeable Intervening Causes)

From Kipling:

The careful text-books measure
(Let all who build beware!)
The load, the shock, the pressure
Material can bear.
So, when the buckled girder
Lets down the grinding span,
The blame of loss, or murder,
Is laid upon the man.
Not on the Stuff — the Man!

OK, only the first stanza is about tort law.
