This poem was written for PoefusionMonday Mural ; whereas the author asks what words and thoughts are provoked by the image.  Here are my thoughts . . .

The Stranger

Does the stranger pose danger?
Or is our fear just another prejustice
Taught to us from childhood on?

Does the stranger pose danger?
Or is our fear just another assumption; injustice
for which we so easily pass on?

What are the statistics of the stranger
Who lurks into our minds; our nightmares, our fears?
. . .who causes our hearts to race; our eyes to scan. . .

Does the stranger pose danger?
Is he a rapist, a pedifile, a robber, a murderer?
Or is the stranger simply just a man without a plan?
