The 'Normal' People

Yesterday...
When conformity was meant to keep,
As a measuring of everyone...
By standards expected,
And followed to meet.
The 'normal people believed it their duty,
To depict those specifically to embarrass...
Into restricted limits to know their place.
By making them feel like lepers,
If they should happen to look...
Or even 'act' in a certain way.
And many accepted to obey...
The doings of the...'normal' people!

Times have changed.
But those minds still exist.
Minds afflicted,
By appearances expressing a differentness.
Or that which should be of proper social etiquette.

Times have changed.
But those minds still exist.
And those portraying themselves 'normal',
With attempts made to stay that way...
Have shown with that known,
They condone domestic violence.
The 'normal' people...
Have raised children who lack discipline and respect.
The 'normal' people...
Have chosen to credit their lives into pits of deep debts.
The 'normal' people...
Accept as a standard they value,
Deception, murder, armed robbery and theft.
To then excuse their mental illnesses existing,
As stress developed by their causing an economic mess!

But today...
To excuse their craze as isolated events,
As these events occur more...
Inside their own protective fences.
Difficult it is for them to continue with attempts to convince,
They are 'normal' people when disappearing is the evidence.

Times have changed.
But those minds still exist.
Minds afflicted,
By appearances expressing a differentness.
Or that which should be of proper social etiquette.
Since dysfunctional is their presence.
With very few unaffected to overlook their existence.
Although declaring themselves insane,
Would not be the appropriate thing to admit...
'Normal' people with minds afflicted would choose to do.
