…Some species of orange sheep

 

 

People are strange
People are weird
People should not be orange
Orange and strange seem to rhyme
Yet I thought orange had no rhyme
It’s not supposed to have a rhyme

If a person is not strange
And if they are not weird
And worse still if they are orange
Then they are an orange canvas
Or some species of orange sheep
Neither can leap or have any possession to keep

People are strange
People are weird
You are seared
By an estranged beard*
But I am normal
Because I am abnormal and paranormal

  1. Love this. The end reminded me of one of my favorite quotes: “Perhaps that’s the choice we all have to make: boringly normal or boringly abnormal? Which do you want to be?” – from Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail by Chris Dawes.
    In my opinion, being abnormal is way more fun. 🙂
