With no two the same
Each human is different
Does that make us strange?

We call others strange
If they are not the same as
Most of the others

But if most others
Are not the same, then why must
They call others strange?

If we are all strange
Then strange is normalcy and
Normalcy is strange

This unconventional haiku focuses on teasing and the hypocrisy of bullies.

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.
