Let "Normal" Take A Rest



Set aside all urgency
Let "trifle" take a test
Set aside all cogency
Let "logic" take a rest

Set aside all verity
Let "fiction" take a test
Set aside all ferity
Let "classic" take a rest

Set aside all density
Let "lucid" take a test
Set aside all tensity
Let "worry" take a rest

Set aside all remedy
Let "answer" take a test
Set aside all enmity
Let "rancor" take a rest

Set aside all clarity
Let "candid" take a test
Set aside all rarity
Let "unique" take a rest

Set aside all vanity
Let "snobby" take a test
Set aside all sanity
Let "normal" take a rest
