346. The story of my failure

When I failed
In man’s examination,
God came to my immediate rescue.
He explained
Why I had failed:
Because the examination was very difficult.

    When I failed
In God’s examination,
Man deeply enjoyed my failure
And whisperingly said:
You rightly deserved it
Your rich ignorance beggars description.
