“Who Was That Man?” by Paul Bussan

I love those movies
About a stranger
Who rides into town
On the back of a horse,
And proceeds to start
A chain of events
That makes each person
Take stock of their lives,
So that after he’s gone
Everyone’s better
Or worse for the wear
Than they were
Before he arrived.
