Uncommon Outcomes

to succeed at something, anything is quite a rare feat
failure is a more common outcome, defeat, but lessons are learned
so if you want to get ahead in the world court failure


*Since nette said metered feet was alright [which are not anatomical feet]
I was hoping FEAT would be ok too since it is pronounced fEEt
