We are just some of many
One or more on every line
Don't jump to conclusions
Or there'll be confusion
Make it right and you'll be fine

Can you determine what we are?

The wrong answer is

the letter u

explanation:

We are just some of many

'u' is one of the 26 alphabets

One of us on every line

'u' happens to occur exactly once in each line, except line 3, (thanks @JonMark Perry, this is why this is wrong)

Don't jump to conclusions
Or there'll be confusion
Make it right and you'll be fine

the answer 'u'(you) will be fine!

  • $\begingroup$ Line 3 has jump and conclusion so two instances of letter u for starters, but regardless this isn't the answer. In fact the correct answer does occur more than once on multiple lines. $\endgroup$ – rtk Jun 20 '19 at 16:23
  • $\begingroup$ @rtk wait... multiple lines? but "one of us on every line"... $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jun 20 '19 at 16:30
