What’s Normal?

Nae's Nest —  April 8, 2012 — Leave a comment

They say I am crazy
But who are they?
I dare to be different
No matter what they say
 
What is normal?
What great mind decided what it is?
Someone with his nose in the air
Someone without kids
His heart is cold
He doesn’t care
Sniffing into a fancy handkerchief
Drinking from a teacup with
His pinkie shoved up in the air
 
I gotta a finger for him
I can shove it up in the air too
I am extravagant and charismatic
He’ll be lucky if I don’t sue
I am unique and one of a kind
I assure you crazy, I am not
I am a walking sideshow by choice
How insulting to be called a hot-shot
I am something unexpected
I love the attention
Sometimes rejected
I am never unkind
But if Mr. Normal
Does not leave
My foot he will receive
Up his ass with a twist
I am crazy, I insist

Sing Like A Canary

I will sing like a canary

Just a warning

If pushed to my limit

By a second class tramp

I have a marriage permit

We have many

People in common

To kick at me

Is kicking them

I am weak

Fighting for my life

I don’t need this

Such a lowlife

Our friends

Will come to my aide

If you do not

Quietly

Go away
