The chameleon ran vertically, straight up the wall

and disappeared though a crack infinitesimally small

“Did you just see that”! The post man exclaimed

“Their the masters of disguise”, I quickly explained

Running across, peering through the small crack

The post man kept looking dropping his sack

“Stand back and wait quietly, he’ll soon reappear”

And then… as if by magic, the chameleon was there.

I turned to the post man and to my great surprise

Morphing, a giant chameleon looked me straight in the eyes

“That is my boy” he proudly said,

Placing him in his post bag, that turned in to a bed

And with that I left, driving off in my van

Waving good- bye, to what was the post man.

Who then quickly changed to a red traffic light

Which I screeched to halt at… try as I might

I could not escape from his tight griped clutches

My ‘Misses’ deathly quiet, that’s unlike the Duchess

Then the traffic light changed, red amber,, green

When a ‘HONK’ from behind, shattered my dream
