There Is Always One Better

You may be quite marvelous at what you do
But remember there is always one better than you
With your achievements you ought not get carried away
As self praise it is no praise the wise one did say

You may be best at what you do in the town
And well on your way to far greater renown
But more than likely you may not have to travel too far
To find one at what you are good at better than you are

At what you are good at the highest point you may attain
But for a long spell of time as number one you will not remain
The very best have a use by date on them would you not agree
At least anyway that's how it seems to be

You may not be found to be wanting when put to the test
And what you are good at considered as best
And though the best as is said may be the hardest to beat
Eventually they too meet up with defeat.
