five chameleon sisters
five chameleon sisters with talents none shared
dancing the day awake in a Nebraskan hay field
one was a dancer, dreaming of Broadway and Park Avenue
one was a soothsayer, seeing three of their futures.
Terrified because she could not see Gladys in the future.
Gladys was laughing the loudest, she brought mirth and joy
Had been uniting them in a loving way since her birth
Gwendolyn tried to shake off the feeling of death
Her premonitions had a way of coming to pass.
You do not look happy, observed Genevieve. She was their empath.
No idea why, she fibbed, not wanting to alarm anyone.
