The Chameleon

1.

strange creature
blends-in
or at least tries to

could be seen as deceptive
stealthy

alas the chameleon cannot resist

its hardcoded genetic imprints make it so

2.

‘The Social Chameleon’

laughing
wandering

trying to fit in

always

harder
craving acceptance
wanting to belong

somewhere at least

so please take a minute
&

think about this for a while …

grow up someplace
then leave

start someplace else
then leave

start someplace else
then leave

start someplace else
then leave

start someplace else
which happens to be here

now
where the social chameleon is presently

starting someplace else …

Ps: “The Social Chameleon” also goes by the label

though often an epithet

‘immigrant’

(inspired by the poem “The Good Immigrant” by Maria Jastrzębska)
