If All The Good People Were Clever And All The Clever People Were Good The World Would Be Nicer Than Ever We Thought That It Possibly Could.

If all the good people were clever
And all the clever people were good
The world would be nicer than ever
We thought that it possibly could.
But somehow, 'tis seldom or ner
The two hit it off as they should
The good are so harsh to the clever
The clever so rude to the good!
--Elizabeth Wordsworth
