    Chameleon


    Oh chromatophore of disguise

    with trembled gait to ape the sway

    of leaves, the swivelled turret eyes,

    what 360 world do they map within

    that narrow skull, that beaded skin,

    what trait betrays an incautious fly.

    What message does a tongue

    carry for the ranged prey.

    Would it portray as if

    there had been love

    with loss and grief

    the price to pay as proof

    The impetus for this came from reading
