A portion of apportioning

I have heard people say
that it’s their fault
not his fault or her fault
but their fault,

but who is at fault,
him, her, them, their?

eeny meeny
it’s them
and it’s always them.
them had better be rowing the boat
or it’s overboard for them
and them
better float or it’s adios to
them that don’t give a toss
for us.
