Terza Rima: Home: Norman’s Odyssey

I said it would happen. Here it is, a terza rima from the point of view of Norman Normalson. I also wrote an alternate version, which is more mature and does not involve Norman or aliens or butts.

Again, thanks to Cubby and her terza rima challenge for the inspiration. I’ve had fun with the challenges. I’m going to try the rondeau, again. It might be Norman, again. It might be The L Squad. It might be something else. I’ll see where the muse takes me.

Home: Norman’s Odyssey

Home’s so far away, this little journey
Somehow became an endless odyssey
All the other kids feel like they must laugh
‘Cause I’m 9, and I don’t have a mustache
I was normal. Now, I’m an oddity

I wish my mom were here to coddle me
I don’t fit in mentally or bodily
Someday, I’ll go home, if I can just last
Home’s so far away

No tail, so kids are always mocking me
That’s the only time they will talk to me
They eat the cheese of the gwatuchorazz
That’s cheese that comes from an animal’s butt
I need to escape to Earth flawlessly
Home’s so far away
