There is a stranger in the world
the foreigner with ways too strange
to be considered one of the pack
to be seen as human like the rest of us.
There is a stranger in our land
an outlander compared to our kind
with speech and manner so confused
to make them unwanted at this time.
There is a stranger down the road
the transient not approved by the Lord
damnation's child at their heart
fallen one to be estranged.
There is a stranger next to you
a visitor when none was due
divergent thoughts pouring forth
contaminates so close to make one sick.
There is a stranger in the mirror
an alien in human guise
seeing all as outsiders hellion sent
knowing all are the stranger me.
