Being Normal

PAD Challenge, Day 8: write a "normal" poem
Just for the record, I don't write this from any personal experience :)

How boring to be normal
like a setting on the dryer,
just average in a crowd,
another member of the choir.

How usual to be normal
like a perfect right angle,
only one, not any greater,
invariant, unspangled.

How typical to be normal,
like part of a control group,
a pattern of a pattern,
another uniform in the troop.

  1. Normal is typical indeed in every way, for better or for worse.
