The Man Blind From Birth

it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
That man who was blind from birth
Right there, all the philosophies
Meet singularly in dis-ease
What could such a man be worth
His peril is no one's fault at all
His story does not a moral call
To mind, but overthrows their paltry ward
As so many tables in temple were
Flipped in might and great anger
No one's fault! But we move toward
-- was it God's? But God came there
And revealed a strange and utmost care
To permit a world of broken things
That man alone cannot make straight
Now the lawyers grow all more irate
What great error this well man brings!
Whose eyes were this late made from earth
This man who was blind from birth!?
