Everything can feel so tough
When someone isn’t up to snuff.
Your best may not be good enough
Although you try and try.
What often happens off the cuff,
As simple as a powder puff,
May suddenly seem raw and rough,
A truth you can’t deny.
So if you’re acting grim and gruff
Because you lack your normal stuff,
You just might not be up to snuff
And that’s the reason why.
