Chameleon

A social chameleon slides right in
Knows what to say and how to spin
Sweet nothings, chitchat, astute social commentary
Charming and flirtatious, sipping a fine French Chablis

Can change his spots according to
Any genre or milieu
Adjusts his hue and colouring
To be neither too left nor too right wing

When the colours fade back to black
The mask splits apart with a swift sharp crack
Stripped of pretense, not so debonair
Just rather ordinary and rather the worse for wear
