Chameleon - Poem by Lee John Siebritz

From brown to green
Chameleon changes he’s colour
To suit the cause
To embrace the rainbow nation

He can fit in with all
After segregation
After hibernation
Chameleon walks free

Down the roads
Up the hills
In between robots
Chameleon walks free

The wind howls furiously
Gusts blows him away
Papers fly across the streets
And chameleon walks free

Returning home
To the planks of dirt
Cockroaches observe him with haunted eyes
Chameleon changes colour
Chameleon is free!
