Is common sense a noble choice?
compared to selfish subjective emotions and desires
based on the best logic we can muster
making lists-- evaluating risks, determining safest profitable directions
in essence, intellectually we just “play the odds”
foolishly we skip the foundation—miss the guidance
exalting limited logic over Eternal voices
it is not the longest physical life we should seek
but rather a fruitful life in spirit and deed
conservative sight – fallible logic no miracles create
“risky” Faith does nothing else but a miracle make
Everything Jesus taught was contrary to common sense
