Demons Are Chameleons - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Demons are chameleons.
And precise when chamouflaged.
Put on the spot they will hiss and slither quick,
To avoid being exposed with a venom to spit.
Socially accepted and at the center of started conflicts.

Twisted poisonous tongues used to deceive anyone.
With an aim to gain attention from those they deceive.
To eventually sting those of good intentions and deeds.
And demons 'are' chameleons who in chamouflage,
Can hide their evil doings in an unsuspecting entourage.

Demons are chameleons with mentalities demeaning,
And corrupt.
With destructive dispositions.
Demons are chameleons with mentalities demeaning,
And corrupt.
With their minds messed up.
Demons are chameleons with mentalities demeaning,
And corrupt.
With destructive dispositions that are limited in vision.
Demons are chameleons with mentalities demeaning,
And corrupt.
With a stinging done until 'they' are stung.
With a stinging done until 'they' are stung.
With a stinging done until 'they' are stung.
And it comes.
To be done.

    This is interesting- could we turn it around and say chameleons are demons then? Demons we hate- -chameleons we love. This is, as I said, an interesting poem though. Although I would never eat a chameleon, this presents food for thought. (Report) Reply
