Clownish and playful

Note: Norman, Hank's eldest grandee turned
15 years on Aug 21. He was given a drawing
set and quickly sketched the above

Norman earlier featured as a budding artist (here)

3WW given words:
menacing rampant unravel

A Tanka (5-7-5-7-7 syllable count)
Clownish and playful
Menacing, rampant of tricks
Fooled by such antics
Not easy to unravel
But character found credence
Anti-thesis of Batman

A Haiku (5-7-5 syllable count)
Earlier passed over
Later found to be ideal
Good balance enhanced

For Thong's hosting at 3WW week #442 and
Kerry's The Tuesday Platform at Real Toad's
