Chameleon's Evening...With The President


Hapless Jim Lehrer
Productions presents
'Chameleon's Evening
With the President'
*
*
Shifting dunes
Amidst the sand
Hypocrisy's scourge
..Reveals the scan

Of molting Chameleon
...In full view
As only the Chameleon
....Is liable to

Throughout an Evening
....Quintessential
President remained
..Yes..Presidential

Chameleon sought
What Chameleons seek
...Control the mind
.........Control the weak

Still..Heaven denied
..Hypocrite's intent
Sending just enough Souls
.....Forty-seven...percent
