Someone to blame 

It doesn’t matter who just someone 

They’re different? Even better 

Do they look at life and death with a joy 

A world you cannot comprehend? 

And really don’t want to 

Whispers behind them, smile ahead 

Swear your mind is open and you an open book 

You fester, hatred like acid burning a hole 

In your small shrivelled heart 

Getting smaller like your mind 

Looking, you call it working to drive out 

Difference 

Try and spread your fear so they are captives 

The ones in cities, towns, villages terrified 

Of the world you’re telling them exists 

It’s not true but isn’t the bad stuff easy to believe? 

Tell them it’s dark 

Tell them it’s coming for them 

Dressed up or one of their own kind 

The evil is hidden plainly you whisper 

Like a voice from afar dripping slowly 

You will not win 

Like the schoolyard bully but willing to go further 

You can taunt, and are doing your worst 

But it’s the unknown you try to give fear of 

And it’s known, we know, we see through you 

The parlour phantom whose time is limited 

The battle is being lost in finding the one 

Some one to blame
