The Pool of Mediocrity

The pool of mediocrity
Appears a commonplace
Of banal plain run-of-the-mill
All grey at the coalface

Normality personified
And ordinary too
But without mediocrity
Could excellence imbue?

Could superb really then exist
Without deficiency
Could brilliance shine out above

For would we then perceive the state
Of tip-top quality
If we had nothing to compare
To mediocrity

And so perhaps this little pool
That’s shunned as nothing great
Is actually the harbinger
Of all we call first-rate!
