Limerick Ode To “Use Your Common Sense Day”
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There are people with brilliance immense
Who lack, nonetheless, common sense.
Despite great comprehension,
You might have to mention:
“Wear clothing. This blizzard’s intense.”

    “Common Sense Day” was obviously started by an attorney. “Use your common sense” is hooted unremittingly during juror Voir Dire & in Closing Arguments at every trial [TruTV, HLN, TLC, Dateline, 20/20, Discovery I.D.’s murder cases]…it’s lost all meaning. I prefer “Be analytical…ask Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? when you hear testimony or see documents.” [P.S. This ? also works when some1 lies or bullshits you.]
    P.P.S. Writer of limerick has “brilliance immense.”
