When code is written by the best and the brightest,
It is likely to be the fastest and the lightest,
Loops would be the most efficient and tightest,
And the code would look great overall.

But if it is written by the rest of us here,
It may take a little longer for results to appear,
And some of the logic would not be as clear,
But it might just work overall.

The question is then, as you may have guessed,
Should the writers of code be only the best?
The answer, of course, is whomever has zest,
Will always work out overall.

As long as we admit, we don't know it all,
(Unless you're a Larry, known as a Wall,)
And code for the answer the call,
We ought to be better overall.
