STRANGER THAN CAMUS

camus

Taciturn and withdrawn
An outsider from within
Strange man strange world
Lopsided empty grin

An unusual man with blood on his hand
Police took him in for a personal session
Why did he kill a man on the beach
But that was just part of their question
Cop
Come on son come talk to us
We will treat you as a brother
Why did you shoot and kill a man
Why don’t you love your mother
Stranger
I wasn’t really thinking anything
When the stranger began his advance
Life is pointless and so is this
I’m apathetically enhanced

Staring bug eyed in disbelief
The cop attempted to set the scene
When he asked if the man believes in god
The stranger answered “what do you mean?”

The interrogator raised his voice up high
Vocal chords trembling with deep distain
Face full of red and finger pointing
At this killer who took god in vain

Cop
don’t you understand
You cant be a man
He sent his only son
To suffer for your gun
You killed another man
Yet you don’t understand
You shot an Arab dead
Four times into the head
Pumped him full of lead
Now the Lord is at your bed
Yet you question god instead

Stranger

You tell me Jesus suffered
To free me of my shame
Nailed upon a cross of hate
Suffered hours of pain
Absolving us of all our sin
Is that how it begins?
Many died by point of sword
So you can praise your mighty lord
Murder maim blood and libel
Read it all inside your Bible
You sing and praise him once a week
Excuse me sir your faith is bleak

Cop
How can you sit here silent
A criminal so violent
One who causes harm
Discards his mom
Worst of all you have the gall
To not believe in god
Your life is a facade
Your guilty of a murder boy
Your going to lose your head
The chaplain wants to see you
But you go to sleep instead
Good lord son what’s on your mind
You are on trial for someone’s murder
Do you even understand?
You couldn’t act any more absurder

Stranger

You say it’s a trial of murder yet question my belief
Or if I love my mom so much why don’t I practice grief
Because I’m not like you I must be guilty?
Sir I may not be a genius
But faith is for your convenience
Life is vague and meaningless
I don’t care if your God exists
Ignorance is your only bliss
I only want leave
Its not that I don’t believe
It just will never make a difference
No difference to my existence
I don’t need your assistance
Tired of your insistence
I need to keep my distance
Away from your persistence
That your gods existence
Makes a bit of difference
To how I live my life
What’s happened has happened
Only my name is blackened
I am just man
Who killed another man
My life is plain
Like you I pain
Why do say I take god in vain?
I don’t like your spin
No one perished for my sin
You believe your Gods a hero
I believe the theory of zero
You still hold tight your mothers breast
I allow my Maman to rest
That makes me different, not guilty
Not filthy
As you suggest
You say I should die
Because I didn’t cry
At the viewing of my Moms final mile
No tear did I shed
A woman shared my bed
We shared a night of pleasure
What makes you so clever?
My demeanor is not what should be on trial
Not religious denial
I shot in self defense
That’s all that makes sense
What difference if I believe your religion
Put my Mom in a home
And I left her alone
that’s no reason for you to want me in prison
I’m existential
I have not a single goal
Yours is to see my head roll
Life is pointless nothings real
Go ahead, kill me
Then kneel
Kneel and prey to your Lord
And ask for forgiveness

Strangers Judge
In the name of the father, the son, and the holy ghost I sentence you to death. May God have mercy on your soul
