X” Is For Xenophobia,
Which I hardly understand,
Since I always love to travel,
To an exotic distant land.
To feel hatred for things foreign,
Is something I don’t know,
I’m the first to pack my suitcase,
And am thrilled that I can go.
When I visit a foreign country,
I remember I’m a guest,
I respect the rules and culture,
It always works out for the best.
I spend some time in learning,
Before I start from home,
So I won’t feel like a stranger,
In the new place that I roam.
The food of other countries,
Is such a special treat,
I always find there’s something,
That I really like to eat.
I find most folks are friendly,
And, though it may take awhile,
Barriers are broken,
With the warmth of just a smile.
