Once I met a child who was normal.
But not just normal.
This child was the most normal child
That I have ever met.
Far more normal, in fact, than
Any other child I have ever come across.
If I’m honest
All this excessive normality
Made this child
(I wrote this after taking a note in my notebook while having a conversation with a child in my class. I think I was tried to make a joke about someone being so normal that it was weird. The joke fell fairly flat, so I felt there was unfinished business.
