The Chameleon Poet

Hello, Good morning Moon.girl
The sun has come out!
Today the third Eclipse I foretold you about,
This morning cast a shadow over our world.
I have complied with your wish…
The Chameleon Poet
I jostle and joke play around with words
Sometimes as a villain, a lord or a bard
Sometimes I am old sometimes I am young
Sometimes a curveball, often I’ve flung
I’ve been a woman, a man, a boy and a girl
A mad hatter, Oh! And a postman
Dressed in vermilion as the chameleon unfurled
I have been black and white
The Red Indian chief. The Yellow Kung Fu master
The insect beneath, the fly on the wall
The drug taker and dealer
A spiff, a grand cad even a peeler
Clean as a whistle and stunk like a skunk
From responsibilities deliberately shrunk
A spider a bird flying so high
Fully alive or yes! Ghosts that have died.
In real life...
A baby, an infant, a happy innocent boy
A teenager, a man into chaos was hurled.
Studied at school, not very well
Nothing much interested me if honesty I tell
Went on to college to study electrical engineering
Practised martial arts and esoteric doctrines.
Filled my time with meditation and studying religion
Worked alongside the army and the long arm of the law
DNA the scope through often I saw
My poetry reflects on what I've done and seen
some of it beautiful some of it obscene.
There is NEVER any beauty at a horrendous crime scene.
My poetry has always been my rock.
Now yesterday looking irreligion
These comments might just give a flavour of my life
Those who truly know me, know I know the afterlife
For it has always been my strongest calling
Never has my belief ever fallen.
If God exists and is religious at all
When looking at his creation
It must truly appal.
I say ‘if’ because I’ve never seen him
Nor Jesus nor the Devil or witnessed his fall
Well they are another entity entirely
I have seen them and they have seen me.
The fact we commune… Only God can decree.
So here is my conundrum, a paradox for sure
I am an oxymoron nothing less nothing more.
