Selections from ‘Jerusalem’

[The Cry of Los]

(Jerusalem, f. 91, ll. 54–7.)

I CARE not whether a man is Good or Evil; all that I care

Is whether he is a Wise man or a Fool. Go! put off Holiness,

And put on Intellect; or my thund’rous hammer shall drive thee

To wrath, which thou condemnest, till thou obey my voice.
