And enough to meet the needs,
Of an expected mediocrity.
Efficiently, sufficient and effective,
Is a mediocrity to reach,
For those taught to teach...
A doing less than their best is accepted.
Are the lives many live to wish,
For nothing more to exist.
With it believed,
When mediocrity from them leaves...
The best years of their lives had been lived.
