Ode to the Ordinary Man.....

How demotic is the ordinary man

who speaks so plainly whenever he can;

no fancy frills or with words to impress

he casually makes a point to address

the common folk who gather around

to listen to one who is solid and sound.

You see, folk are not fools nor open to greed

they recognize hawkers who just wish to feed

them false empty promises that float in the mist

no matter how hard these hawkers insist.

They say commonsense is really quite rare

with it now neither common nor fully aware,

but a common man's different and is one to be heard

for he brings commonsense and a humble true word

to gatherings of people of the same ilk

who are tired of hearing the false made of silk.
