31 days: Norman

Norman the newt

Norman is a noble newt,
and he has a formal suit
that he often likes to wear,
when attending posh affairs.

He was recently just seen
bowing low before the Queen.
But (to all the watchers’ glee),
a great comedic tragedy:
when Norman slipped to his disgrace
and sploshed red wine into her face.

It was a mighty royal disaster
causing crowds a lot of laughter –
but Norman’s now a lot more humble
ever since his royal tumble.
