Not Enough

Not talented enough for affectation.
Not smart enough to be so arrogant.
I’m sorry (not) for this evaluation,
but that’s the gotcha concept that I meant.
My phrasing is exaggerated, bent
to grab attention to this shining fact:
that talent has a clear and clean intent,
and real intelligence displays with tact.

(Huitain)
