869. Nobody is wrong

Nobody can be wrong
All the time.
Are we worse than
A dead clock?
No, never!
Even a dead clock
Is perfectly right
Twice a day.

Nobody can be right
All the time.
The cosmic gods are
Far better than us
Much higher than us.
Yet, I tell you,
They, too,
Make deplorable mistakes
Once in a while.
