Overly Normal

Deutsch: Eingangsportal des Circus Krone

“I’m not a freak,”
they heard me shriek.
“So let me stay
and collect my pay.”
But they said “no,”
that I must go.
And I asked, “why?”
As I could try
to fit right in;
I have thick skin.
Then the letter,
was not much better.
I’m not so weird
as I had feared.
They fired me
because, you see,
a circus wants
abnormal ones.
So now its formal,
I’m too normal.

This is my take on a normal poem for the Wednesday prompt at Poetic Asides.
