I have long been prepared and accustomed,
To do at my best and expect it to be compared...
With a mediocrity another who has less discipline,
Had been picked and selected to express similar effort.
And I have learned too many lessons,
Not to let the obvious reasons upset me.
Longevity addressed can not be refused.
People come to know it.
And rely upon its consistency to not become confused.
Tried and staying true to a quality introduced,
Is dependable and is never replaced...
By two-faced excuse makers seeking applause.
