cleverly shunned

cleverly shunned
this clever lad
who once was
quite celebrated
applauded, even;
that once and
clever tyke --
little did he know
one forward day
when he'd've all
up and grown
dependable lads
are what's wanted
clever 'uns were
interesting enough
for a bit of a larf but
just a tad annoying;
when things gotta
be done - go figure
dependability and
cleverness could
be so incompatible
in people's heads;
so be rather dull
but trustworthy
than yip yap like a pup
that's cleverly shunned

Unfortunately socially we simply make fun of those who are clever. meanwhile people kill themselves trying to conform to a norm created by advertising and really dumb people. This is a piece that makes you think, lol.
