Subordinate

The path of mediocrity
is never very steep
so you don't have to fear a drastic fall
but you must (with alacrity)
humor every creep
that passes you en route to standing tall

ascension takes ability
augmented by desire
and courage to attempt a rocky course
or you can choose servility
to those that didn't tire
traversing ruts of impotent remorse.

The mediocre do seem to easily be put in a position of power. I guess it is so those will real power, can hide behind those who grovel at their feet.

Never thought of it that way but of course they would hide so no one knows them.
