Immigrant Salvation by Andy Brown

A chameleon walked into a bar
No-one saw him arrive
An immigrant walked into a bar
Everyone turned to stare
A chameleon walked into a bar
Felt at home immediately
An immigrant walked into a bar
Experienced feelings of alienation
A chameleon walked into a bar
Blended smoothly into the crowd
An immigrant walked into a bar
Could not confidently communicate
A chameleon walked into society
No-one noticed his contribution
An immigrant embraced opportunity
Ferociously fought initial fear
A chameleon faded within the crowd
Accepted anonymity without adversity
An immigrant studied and understood
Became a beacon for the community
A chameleon walked into a bar
Nobody showed the slightest interest
An immigrant walked into a bar
Everyone applauded and hoped.
