Common sense cannot be taught

Not begged, borrowed, or brought

Like the human heart it needs exercise

Without precious air, it eventually dies

Be careful while crossing the street

Dodging fast cars is a risky feat

Good judgment is what you lack

Wrong choices you can’t take back

Ignoring the obvious every time

Choosing ridiculous over sublime

When it speaks, take time to listen

Inner voice called female intuition

Before you jump, consider the leap

Before diving in, measure how deep

Don’t live life in a constant free fall

Try common sense once and for all

No need to enroll in a formal college

To learn about common knowledge

It's a thing that one can never teach

Begin to practice what others preach
