The Definitions I Have Heard

Happiness was to live like another
And kindness was to dance to the tune of another

Mediocrity was when you said your mind
And patience was when you surrendered

Good conduct was to accept imposition
And changed, if you were in a new habitation

The words I heard where not in the dictionary
Nor were they recognized vocabulary

But, had to endure them because of my status
They thought I was the poor of the poors

But, poverty was no architecture
Neither was it a fracture

Down at hill you were when you accept the notion
But, you need to strive to develop the nation

And this I have done all of the time
So, you need to apply common sense sometime.
