You are wiser than you’ve ever been.
Your brain knows right from wrong.
There’s a story I must tell,
Because I know you’re strong.
A stranger shouted out my name.
I didn’t know his face.
He said he needed help from me,
Which COULDN’T be the case.
I ran away as he approached,
Keeping lots of space!
NO adult needs help from kids.
So I kept that speedy pace.
If a person’s strange, that IS the rule.
Away from them you race!
Even if they shout or cry,
Quickly leave that place!
Remember manners don’t even count,
When there comes up a stranger.
You won’t get at all in trouble, friend,
You’ll get right out of danger!
