Between Two Stools
By John Heath
NED will not keep the Jewish Sabbath, not he,
Because the Church has otherwise ordained;
Nor yet the Christian for he does not see
How alt’ring the day can be maintained;
Thus seeming for to doubt of keeping either        5
He halts betwixt them both and so keeps neither.
