Don't ask where this came from, guess its just the abnormal part of me coming through...

It’s just the same all round the big blue marble,

Falsely made or better yet a garble,

In the back of the throat is where we gargle…


Are we not normal?

The marble is not in anyway formal,

Better we should delve into the paranormal,

Than be considered by others as abnormal…


Existence in general is certainly not reality,

And reality is generally not considered existence,

To some being normal is exhibiting homosexuality,

To others it is an aberration brought on by not being normal,

But I for one don’t believe this in all actuality…

I am whot I am, that's reality enough fer me. There have been times when it was a little more reality than I bargained for.
