Ill share the wealth!
No sensible career was good enough
Only a hero could deserve such love

of a poet and his wife!

No sensible career was good enough. A simple job or education is not good enough. Only a hero could deserve such love. Like a hero from the military, or people that go on to persue their career to the maximum.

The Average by W. H. Auden
you have to read the whole poem to understand it.
His peasant parents killed themselves with toil
To let their darling leave a stingy soil
For any of those smart professions which
Encourage shallow breathing, and grow rich.
The pressure of their fond ambition made
Their shy and country-loving child afraid
No sensible career was good enough,
Only a hero could deserve such love.
So here he was without maps or supplies,
A hundred miles from any decent town;
The desert glared into his blood-shot eyes;
The silence roared displeasure: looking down,
He saw the shadow of an Average Man
Attempting the exceptional, and ran.

You would have to give more than two sentences. Were they in a poem? Then add the whole poem. Were they out of a paragraph from a book? Then add the whole paragraph. To try to interpret what you have here by itself is impossible.
