To the Utilitarians

Avaunt this economic rage!
What would it bring? — an iron age,
When Fact with heartless search explored
Shall be Imagination's Lord,
And sway with absolute controul
The god-like Functions of the Soul.
Not thus can Knowledge elevate
Our Nature from her fallen state.
With sober Reason Faith unites
To vindicate the ideal rights
Of Human-kind — the true agreeing
Of objects with internal seeing,
Of effort with the end of Being. —
