Common Sense

It’s that little thing that tells you

You really shouldn’t be doing that

If the forecast calls for rain

It’s what tells you to take a hat


If the waters start rising

It’s what tells you to steer clear

When you’re on a winning team

It’s what tells you to stand and cheer


When the shortcut is too dark

In an unknown part of town

Common sense will tell you

Take the long way around


And yes, it should tell you

Fires don’t belong under trees

That just one glowing ember

Turns to fire with the slightest breeze


But, if it’s common sense your lacking

Keep your eyes peeled for signs

They’re perfect examples

Of sensible guidelines

Thanks for stopping by!
