Un-Common Sense - Poem by Stanley Cooper

The misnomer referred to as common-sense
Is un-common and quite often spurious
That we bestow on ourselves this idea-pretense
Makes logical thinkers most furious

Common-sense, does it really exist?
Can it be smelled, felt or seen?
How can we know who really has it
And if having it, brands them as keen?

Common -sense can lead you astray
And very often distraught
With conclusions most false when figured that way
Unless logically partnered with thought
