The Fly-Trap
by Bryon D. Howell

I am always
leery
of Bipartisan Chameleons.

They tend to
eat
all the wrong kinds
of bugs,
they slither
all over the habitats
of others
as if theirs,
and then they have
the nerve
to change colors
unexpectedly -
just to win
the vote
of an unsuspecting
domestic fly.

Before we lose
our buzz
permanently
we should always
ask
just what color they
change to
when they're
slithering

all over Democracy.
