Unseeing Mole

A man who reads the Word
Not under the Lords auspices
But under the auspices of his own intelligence
Thinks himself a lynx
And better sighted than Argus

And yet he inwardly
Sees not a shred of truth But only what is false
And under self persuasion
This falsity seems to him
Like a polar star
Towards which he directs
All the sails of his thought
And then he no more sees truth
Than a mole.
