"The Most Common Man"

Updated on October 3, 2019

The most common man.

Like trees and mountains, he is not much of a traveler.

He can be found, all over the globe like mountains and trees.

His talents and ideas are as refreshing, as the summer breeze.

He is a member, of the pessimists party (L.I.U) Life is Unfair.


Like the health of cancer victims, he is very poor.

Like artisans , he is very skillful.

Like members of his party, he is a mediocre doer.

People of great talent, but not so useful.


Common is his name.

He has won many championships, at playing the blame game.

At playing the game, he works like a slave.

His feelings of inferiority, are as deep as a grave.


All who have met, with him have admitted.

That Common, the poor man is very talented.
