The Wise Commoner
Complexity in a commoner’s view
Ignorance darkens the sly wise man’s light
Which side of the battle shall one fight?
Assuming neither will choose to subdue
What becomes clear when the day is through?
The deaths of men leave you awake at night
A demon that climbs to the angel’s height
Proving the lies that have come to be true
What beyond the truth, the sinner lays there
Breathless and restless and he cries forlorn
Humility in the blood runs so rare
And this is the day that the saint is born
Believing the commoner’s view to care
Giving a reason to the wise man’s morn
