Rainbow Colored Camouflage


Very many years ago
   In the land of rich men called NO    
      Bobo, a poor man, had nowhere to go
        "Give me a little space to stay", he pleaded, but lo
           "Your place is out of the city," they shooed him and so 
                Outside he stayed in sun, rain and snow
                    Rainbows glowed, stars shone, sun rays blazed on NO and Bobo

Reality was that 
All the people 
In the land of 
NO 
Benefited 
Out of Bobo's 
Woes

For when Bobo died, (and 'twas soon)
The heavens cried, (so did stars, sun and moon)
All lights stopped shining, (darkness invaded) 
The men started whining, (fear pervaded)
The rich men died (one by one)
No one did abide (no, not one) 
NO was no more NO without poor Bobo 
The rich did never know that HE had been their Rainbow.
