Mother Nature Invisibly Clear

Survivalism Camouflaged in Fear

Military Cloaked in Optical Invisibility Suits

Government Creating Quantum Stealth

For the Good of Our Health

Animal Instincts Innate Knowledge Grown

Through Evolution of Losing Their Home

A Progression to Camouflage Even More

As Human’s Desecrate; Kill; Collect Trophies Galore

The Business Suit; The Tattooed; The Uniform

All Camouflage to Cover, or Conform

Make-up to Shield that Purple Bruise

She Received from His Punch on their Cruise

1000 Colours and Hues, for Hair Dye to Choose

Camouflaging Grey and Years to Lose

Mimic Surroundings, Chameleon Be

Hiding in Plain Sight, Yet Not to See

Social Class or Teenage Clique

Braving a Smile, When Truly Sick

Every Aspect of Modern Life

From Leisure, Comfort, to Strife

Is a Camouflage Mastered in Light.

  1. That was a powerful poem, Dorn!
    What a great beginning:
    “Mother Nature Invisibly Clear
    Survivalism Camouflaged in Fear”

    And these lines broke my heart:
    “Mimic Surroundings, Chameleon Be
    Hiding in Plain Sight, Yet Not to See
    Social Class or Teenage Clique
    Braving a Smile, When Truly Sick”

    Well-done!
