Moderate Success

if I had known more
I could have done better
instead I pretended
I already knew enough

I "learned on the job"
and got away with it
until I couldn't bear
pretending anymore

did something else
I also never mastered
in spite of a decade
spent trying to learn

returning to my roots
I kept blundering along
stumbling into wisdom
never really unmasked

ending as well as anyone
after moderate success
making a virtue out of
ignorance and confusion
