The Error of Our Ways                                        

            The heavens –
            Or, more accurately, the sky –
            Above the blessed and the damned
            May be a menace or a source of joy
            Depending on the view

            That those less fortunate
            Will dwell upon the dark
            Or that the lucky few
            Tend more to see the light

            Is often surely wrong
            Though sometimes true

            But worse or better, rich or poor,
            Sick or well, no doubt
            We err 
            Who claim to hear from the celestial plight,
            Any particularly human song

            In tune or out
