It must be observed that the human race
Has developed a method for saving face.
When a human being makes an error,
His monster ego is beset with terror.
He turns around, and what does he do
But blame that horrendous mistake on you.
You, of course, have a reputation,
And will not brook the implication.
You deny the accusal vehemently,
And turn the blame inclemently.
Finding a fall-guy, you throw the muck
And rest content, having passed the buck.
But really, why fret who has the blame?
The error's still there, all the same.
We should be concerned with just the correcting,
And leave wholly off with all the suspecting.
