  Chameleon -
An innocent reptile
Changes its colours
For social signaling, and
Camouflages with surroundings
As a survival instinct
And protection from enemies...

The ingenious humans
Give a negative shade
To this natural instinct
Drawing out a simile for
Covert and deceitful overtures
Of man in furtherance of
Their selfish interests!

Comment Thank you, Nathmal JI, for your frank opinion and comments. I basically wanted to flag is: what an innocent creature does it for survival, a large number of human beings do same in an unethical manner to serve their lust and greed.

Comment Good comparison of chameleon and selfish persons.These days they are increasing very fast.Everywhere deception,corruption,immorality,falsehood,
dishonesty,jealousy and so many other evils are present.A right person is
bewildered.He is perplexed.An accurate path is not seen.At this time we
have to beaware of "girgit"nature persons.Thank you very much to make us
alert.We should identify these people and be cautious of them.Thanks again
for nice thoughts.
