Lament of Common Sense

by Uriel Tovar

So long old friend
Words can’t due this parting
Gesture justice
But let me try

We’ve been together
For such a long time
And been through it all
And I will say
That I’ve leaned on you
All the way

You’ve gotten me out of terrible binds
And helped me avoid
Some which I might not have survived
Only to
In the end
Say goodbye to you

This is the end
And although I do not know why
We must part
We must and I
Will start a new
In a world without any
Common sense.

Excellent personification, Uriel. Yeah, it seems most of the world has said good-bye to common sense. I'd rate this Brilliant if you had that feature on. Will add at least to my favorites.
