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.

A very beautiful written poem, it s true that people always realize the worth of something when it s completely gone and impossible to come back, I love the way you describe your story, and it s good to know that you started writing at 15, I ve recently turned 15 and started to write poems, I ll really appreciate if you could find time to read my poems and let me k ow how they are
