He lacks judgement  

thinks common sense isn’t that common.  

A judgment took possession of his rental over a decade ago.  

Most would have been able to find other work, but he decided to stay alive. Instead of taking  

his life, it was reframed as an adventure, try homelessness instead of institutionalization,  

prison for killing the abusive, leaving behind an unfaithful girlfriend/widow, an unknown child,  

could be his, or not, instant family, that decision was from a broken home, propagated out of  

love and outside marriage.  

He lacks judgment, but played the life dealt him the best he could.
