What is meant by

better or worse?
Some circus performers may resemble spaghetti more than others,

that is to say that certain legs may be more capable of bending every which way

One acrobat may open her legs wider than other,
and is that an indication that she is a better acrobat

than she who strives for such perfection and always falls short?

And who is to decide that the better performer is ‘better’

than she who truly loves the art?

The author's comments:
It simply puzzles me the way intelligence is measured. Does the ability to solve a puzzle in under a minute really account for more than profundity?
