Common Sense: A Satirical Poem
Let me give you a sample of our common sense
and yes, it will be silly, but it's logically sound
no thinking person please take it as offence
much reasoning is based on that ground.
How would you catch a lion, that vicious beast?
I know it would be a hard and a dangerous task
involving courage, maybe luck, to say the least
answer is not simple, and yet that's what I ask.
But let me help you here with some common sense
showing off with smartness is my secret pleasure
I know your curiosity is getting quite intense
so let me share some logical treasure.
Well, you go to Safari where those lions dwell
place an open cage with sign "Lions stay out"
now, since lions can't read it's so easy to tell
one will walk in, and that's what it is all about.
I know it's insane, but you would be surprised
how much common sense goes just like that
used by many brains not even undersized
maybe we have done it to later on regret.
