Passing of Common Sense

We mourn the passing of Common Sense
Who we needed and was close to By Chance
They both deserved more then just tears
As they have been here for many years

Justin Case they both passed on too soon
Read the known fame in the worlds tribune
Keep us near their graves, stand do not weep
Because Common Sense will never sleep

Now we hear from our friend Justin Time
A friend of Common Sense, and of mine
To your deep distress and troubled fret
The passing misdeed that we regret

Without Common Sense where do we lie?
Or told By Chance, perhaps we can try
Justin Case, I hope there is a sign
We will need to wake up Justin Time

Another ready-witted gem has been confected by you and of course I love it.The way that you view life is open-minded and pure.You really do see light in the fragments of life where others espy nothing at all.I believe that you could so do this even if you were blind beacause it is through the eyes of the soul and heart from which you descry life.You are nothing short of poetic genius when the pen invites you to an empty page.Sincerely,Eric

Crafty and prolific! I enjoyed the masterful personification of Common Sense and Justin Case,
and then Justin Time. With the present much ado about Media Trivia, Precious Time might just leave us any day too. Great poem Mae!!! (Relevant too.)
