High standards

High standards are
Best standards;
They are the ideal;
But if you set
High standards,
You must fight hard
To meet the challenge;
You don’t go up
And come down;
If you’re up
You’re up;
You don’t leave an
Ivory Tower
To live in a hut;
You don’t quit a throne
To sit on mud.
Set your standards high;
And meet the challenge
Of high standards.
