The Fallacy of Normalcy


Normal is overrated

Lisa Aro

How do you rate
Usually, over.
Is that normal?
I think that’s the human condition


Normalcy: keeping mental institutions in operation for over a thousand years.

Limerick: Norm is to Blame

There once was a man named Norm
Who somehow took the world by storm
He did the same thing each day
In precisely the same way
And taught all the others to conform



Zappai: Fallacia

to consider the normal
beyond the person


Normalcy: helping you compare your personal identity against a faceless body.

I see the image before me
I see the grand design
I see it in my mind’s eye
Beyond what the common can define

I thought my finger
painting was the shit
When I was young
You should see it now


Normalcy: because bland is delicious
