writing 101,Day, 9 : Camouflage by Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

Assignment: For today’s poem, take inspiration from ‘Camouflage’__ you may apply it in any way you like, whether you write about visual or social dissimulation, or focus in the way we hide our myriad emotions,actions, and reactions. What would be your ultimate smokescreen, concealment, or mask?

The peacock flounder,is a flowery fish

They are outwardly colored

with spots that are bluish!

………………………………

Their ability to change color

in mere seconds

helps them to hunt

and hide from predators!

…………………………

These flowery flounders

can move in any direction

One eye can look forward

and the other  can look  backward!

…………………………….

Camouflage is the name of the game

Comparatively humans put us to shame

Our human predator’s face is so fake

We are unable to recognize them

Even if our life is at stake!

………………………

Many innocent lives are lost

We don’t seem to have the instinct

like that of the flowery flounder

Who is always ready to react

whatever may be  the cost!

…………………………………………….:)

  2. What a fabulous creature to have the ability and perception to identify dangers to its survival and take actions. I like how you contrasted it with our human capabilities which are deficient in identifying it’s predators fake face. Well done Ranu 🙂
