Mock on! Mock on!
By William Blake
MOCK on, mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau,
  Mock on, mock on, ’tis all in vain;
You throw the sand against the wind
  And the wind blows it back again.
And every sand becomes a gem        5
  Reflected in the beams divine,
Blown back they blind the mocking eye
  But still in Israel’s paths they shine.
