-'Tis Human To Err-

                            


   'TIS POWER, TO THE PEN OF THOUGHTS TO WRITE

   FOR WORDS OFT' TIME SPOKEN ARE ON A FLIGHT

   TO A NOWHERE LAND AND THEN LOST IN THE MISTS OF TIME

   BUT PENNED, NOW THOSE WORDS ARE IMMORTALIZED

   IN THE MINDS OF THE PERUSERS TO BE SCRUTINIZED


   COMMENCE THE WRITING THOUGHTLESS IN MIND TO FREE THE PAIN

   TO CLEAN THE AIR TO RID THE GUILT

   AND HIDE THE SHAME OF IGNORANCE NAME

   AND MISUNDERSTANDING STACKED UP TO THE HILT

   'TIS HUMAN BUT TO ERR AS BEFORE SO OFT' DECRIED IN SHAME


   THIS FEAR AND FEAR ALONE THAT SETS THE DOUBT

   FOR FEAR IS LACK OF FAITH AND HARD THE PATH TO MAKE

   'TIS LIES AND DECEIT THAT ULTIMATELY MAIMS THE PATH

   AND RUINS THE LIVES OF PEOPLES DEVOUT


   IT'S PEOPLE WHO PEOPLE SICK AND IN DOUBT MAKE

   WHETHER ONE WOULD CREDIT THE FACT OR NOT

   TAKE FOR INSTANCE AND FOR ARGUEMENT'S SAKE

   THE THREE THINGS THAT CAUSES AFFINITIE'S ROT

   YOU, THEM AND THE OFFENDING SUBJECT

   THEN ASPERSIONS CAST AND SLANDERING BEGIN TO MAKE

   THE SUBJECT OF THE DEBATE LONG LOST IN REGRET

   FOR RIGHT MUST BE THE PATH TO TAKE

   'TIS BUT HUMILITY HEIGHTENED TO APOLOGISE

   'TIS ONLY BUT HUMAN TO ERR, AND THAT FACT, TO RECOGNISE.
