So You Say Normal Is The Way?

The cat has heard it a time or three here at his rhyming sea. You have to be normal they say. Or you have to follow the norm at your bay. Something clever like that. Note, clever was sarcasm from the cat. So for the A to Z we go on a Normal spree.

Get a job.
Don't be a bum like Bob.
Work the 9-5 like a drone.
Sit, type, and answer a phone.

Don't draw outside the lines.
That may get you fines.
Stay in the comfy box.
Make sure to check those locks.

You can't stay in.
That isn't a win.
Go out and drink like the rest
You want to pass the social test.

Join our lame game.
It is not a shame.
Follow the crowd.
Stand up nice and proud.

Drink the water.
Don't be a plotter.
That Kool-Aid is too great.
The norm is your fate.

Normal was set by us.
Don't kick up a fuss.
It is just the way it is.
So plop, plop, fizz, fizz.

Take the normal pill.
You will get a thrill.
As in be like the undead.
Sorry, you still have to get out of bed.

Normal means you are great.
Nothing new is your fate.
Be normal like the rest.
That sure is best.

Don't have a thought of your own.
Cross the street at the tone.
Be like everyone.
Now that is true fun.

Original thoughts are bad.
They make society mad.
Normal is always in.
So stick with it for the win. 

Pffft says the cat. Normal can surely scat. If anyone wants the cat or Pat to be normal at any sea. Come here and in your shoe we'll pee. I may have better aim than Pat. Do you strive to be "normal" at your blog mat? I hope you take a pass. Normal is so boring to my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

      for normal is different at my show
      as my thoughts gently flow
      depends on how the wind does blow
      tell me cat what road do you go

    2. Cat being unique is the way to be
      letting one's spirit run wild and free
      sometimes you're a leaf, sometimes a tree
      sometimes you're a storm, sometimes calm on a rolling sea
      sometimes you're the canoe, sometimes the paddle for thee
      sometimes you're the locket, sometimes you hold the key
      sometimes you're the wine, sometimes the brie
      sometimes it is fun to go on a rhyming spree, wouldn't you agree

  13. Well, most people follow the norm but have a few areas where they are the outcast. For example, you live in bar central...yet you aren't an alcoholic. Look at you, cat, defying the odds.

    P.s. I still want to visit the outhouse museum.

  30. "Normal" - a good word.
    But what does it mean?
    If I do something the same way some people do it, am I "normal"?
    What about the people that do the same thing in a different way, are they "abnormal"?
    And I am confused. Maybe I'm "in between" half normal and half abnormal.

  40. Normal... not for me
    Never tried it at my sea
    And when I choose as a friend
    He/she is far from normal in the end

    And speaking of... I love Janis. She was not exactly considered normal.

    "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
    My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
    Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
    So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?"

I did not do it with hair or make up or anything like that...I just questioned what is. I have a brain so I questioned and got into allot of flack. I Catholic High School, kids were laugh at me when I kept asking why we have to pray to God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost. It never made any sense to me-forget the rest and go straight to the top if you must pray. Why deal with the middle man. I was on the bad list and am proud of that
