1207, He preached upon breadth till it argued him narrow - Version 1

Written Text

He preached upon “breadth” till it argued him narrow,— The broad are too broad to define: And of “truth” until it proclaimed him a liar,— The truth never flaunted a sign. Simplicity fled from his counterfeit presence As gold the pyrites would shun. What confusion would cover the innocent Jesus To meet so enabled a man!
