The Ordinary Man Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCDCD EFEFBGBG HIHIJDJD

If you and I should chance to meetA
I guess you wouldn't careB
I'm sure you'd pass me in the streetA
As if I wasn't thereB
You'd never look me in the faceC
My modest mug to scanD
Because I'm just a commonplaceC
And Ordinary ManD
-
But then it may be you are tooE
A guy of every dayF
Who does the job he's told to doE
And takes the wife his payF
Who makes a home and kids his careB
And works with pick or penG
Why Pal I guess we're just a pairB
Of Ordinary MenG
-
We plug away and make no fussH
Our feats are never crownedI
And yet it's common coves like usH
Who make the world go roundI
And as we steer a steady courseJ
By God's predestined planD
Hats off to that almighty ForceJ
THE ORDINARY MAND
