The Other

beware of “those people”

they are dangerous

they are a different breed

they are not like us

lets form a group

lets take a stand

they are taking our land

They do not belong here

I for one see

that they are not like me

I want them out of existence

they are not worthy

of being

of sharing the same Earth

the God that shines on me

also views them as not worthy

my mind separates, categorizes,

and forms distinctions

I don’t know them

yet I’m spinning illusory webs

in their direction

I take that as real

but in all reality

they are just like me

if I took the time

to get to know them

but hold on right there

that takes work

I’m a lazy man

plain as day

for all to see

possibly

even proud of my ignorance

a dangerous game

but why worry

it takes introspection

possibly changing

so why bother

it is much easier

to look at them

as

The Other
