Enjoy mediocrity. You write because you know rhythms and beats by themselves are base hedonistic distractions and are only really used to make the lyrics harder to disagree with.
actually there is merit to this. stephen king for example is the big mac of the literary world.
the big mac is the worlds most popular restaurants most popular sandwich. there is something intensely human about producing something so universally accessible. being able to understand what normies want is art. it is the very nature of aesthetics. now as you make the meaning more narrowly defined you reduce your audience as well. to the point where scizophrenic communication has an audience of one.
most classical composers did not make money off of their sonatas, they wrote a fuckton of waltz music. shitty dancing music was where the money was at. or the preludes they used for teaching students.

there is merit to being a shill? you can use and develop your skills tentmaking? tentmaking does not make you inherently mediocre.
nearly everything written by Chopin was a shitty waltz.
