The poem is below.


Rainbow Colored Camouflage

I slid down the rainbow
Yet you couldn't see
all my colourful friends
escaping insanity

Unicorns and fairies 
dancing in rainbow light
If we weren't camouflaged 
we might give you a fright

Some friends are bright yellow
others are quite deep blue
Seven colours to choose
many wore more than two

My friend, Count Dracula
is mostly fond of red
The Dye from his clothing
was gifted by the dead

I'm fond of indigo
some others prefer green
But the best was violet
as worn by Mr. Bean

No need for sunglasses
they will not help you see
Camouflaged in rainbow
don't you wish you were me?
