Chorus Common

Accomplishments do little
To enhance capacity
Or transform the character.

The multilingual
And the well-traveled
Have not become wise,

And the self-made successes
Were not so self-made
And rarely are geniuses.

The ones with the gifts
To offer the rest
Live at the bottom

Of abandoned wells,
Crowded and croaking like frogs.
“These are for you. Please. Take them.”
