Common Sense

When the British were asked to take a vote
Remain was the common sense choice
But instead the majority opted for Leave
And the Brexiteers rejoice

No one could ever support Donald Trump
It’s a wonder that he even ran
Though common sense told us he hadn’t a chance
Guess what? They elected that man

We eat too much, we drink too much
And smoke though we know that we shouldn’t
But if we applied everyday common sense
It’s safe to suggest that we wouldn’t

Unlike lemmings that rush to jump over a cliff
We can also stand and stare
But that doesn’t seem to happen these days
Why is common sense so rare?
January 2018

My submission for February 2018 edition of Oldie magazine on the topic Common Sense.
