Vero Verse Foreigners are People from Another Place

You might not understand when they’re talking
But just like you they locomote by walking
As sure as day wanes when the sun goes down
It’s natural for all young children to run around
All races have introverts, and braggadocios
Philanthropists, misers, and Pinocchio’s

Prejudice, war, or poverty are motivations for fleeing
To a place with maximum prospect for wellbeing
To build a future better than the past
Security and opportunity are all they ask
Extend a hand and kiss prejudice adieu
Most likely you had foreign ancestors too
