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.
