Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXV: Common Thing


It’s not a kindness of heart
It’s not strong solidarity
It’s just a common thing

It’s not local wisdom
It’s not old tradition
It’s just a common thing

It’s not call of duty
It’s not sense of right
It’s just a common thing

It’s not formal greeting
It’s not automatic response
It’s just a common thing

It’s not a matter of guessing
It’s not a part of instinct
It’s just a common thing

It’s not natural reaction
It’s not act of compassion
It’s just a common thing

It’s not regular news
It’s not lack of awareness
It’s just a common thing

It’s not general knowledge
It’s not piece of memory
It’s just a common thing

It’s not statistic range
It’s not operational standard
It’s just a common thing

It’s not moral excuses
It’s not people ignorance
It’s just a common thing

It’s not public secret
It’s not rhetoric question
It’s just a common thing

It’s not different mindset
It’s not basic solution
It’s just a common thing

It’s not absolute law
It’s not blind obedience
It’s just a common thing

It’s not sweet revenge
It’s not getting even
It’s just a common thing

It’s not constant worry
It’s not planted fear
It’s just a common thing

It’s not usual bickering
It’s not daily fight
It’s just a common thing

It’s not die hard habit
It’s not strange behavior
It’s just a common thing

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
