its a good point. I think xenophobia is basically a combination of all those things. It's basically the fear and hatred of your own ignorance that causes you to be afraid of people who live totally different lives than you. It's like, because you don't know their life, you hate it, because it's so unfamiliar and makes you feel stupid and ignorant. It brings up a lot of thoughts in such a small poem. Great work!
