You could open that door with a key.
You could avoid a confrontation if you flee.
You could make her fall for you with a rose.
You could see opportunities by being on your toes.
You could escape that situation with a bluff.
You could ace the test if you study enough.
You could earn your spot with plenty hard work.
You could be liked if you stop being a jerk.
You could win anything you want with luck.
You could buy your way in if you pay a nice buck.
… or you could do it all with a sharp mind –
An indispesable thing, a Swiss knife of a kind.
You may not even need anything else but it,
But it will always serve you, even with kit.
You don’t look like much, and you don’t have things,
But with a sharp mind, you’ve got more than kings.
