Two from Lambeth:

An Answer to the Parson

Why of the sheep do you not learn peace?
Because I don't want you to shear my fleece.


Thou hast a lap full o fseed
And this is a fine country:
Why dost thou not cast thy seed
And live in it merrily?

Shall I cast it on the sand
And turn it into fruitful land?
For on no other ground
Can I sow my seed
Without tearing up
Some stinking weed.

-William Blake
