What is nowadays common
is nonsense over sense.
What was still is.
Moving forward is not
on the agenda, so
it is time for the not common.

This poem was written in response to the day five “intelligence” prompt at Poetic Asides. It is a golden shovel based on a Voltaire quote: “Common sense is not so common.”
