Letter to the Editor: The Common Man

The Common Man

When our government starts to fail

The Common Man gets to post its bail

He trucks food across country so we can eat

Gives shelter to soldiers to rest their feet

Makes sure that the children rest safe in their beds

Puts roofs for the elderly over their heads

Wouldn’t it be a blessing if the ones we elect

Would give us back just a little respect

To see hoe we struggle from morning to night

Trying so hard to live our lives right

But it won’t happen until the Common Man says enough

And the man he elects starts  to live rough

And when the elected have nothing to eat

The Common Man will help him get back on his feet

For he will remember when he was in that place

But he escaped it by the power of grace
