The chameleon dance

The chameleon dance rests in a man’s mind…
To the procrastinator a slow waltz starts
and avails to him reasons to be unkind

In the throes of passion he rejects his bind,
gyrating wildly in the tango of hearts.
The chameleon dance rests in a man’s mind

quick stepping excuses to uphold his grind.
He blames stress from work and an ailing path charts
and avails to him reasons to be unkind.

In a slow dance his excuses are confined,
he claims the seductress made him drown his smarts.
The chameleon dance rests in a man’s mind

enabling him to leave his ‘fat’ wife behind.
In the alcoholic drink his eye sight darts
and avails to him reasons to be unkind.

He never takes blame for his mistakes combined
…oh the devil is to blame when his wife parts.
The chameleon dance rests in a man’s mind
and avails to him reasons to be unkind
