Poetry Thursday and Illustration Friday Camouflage

Camouflage
Don’t we all camouflage?
In one way or another,
With makeup or a hairdo
Hiding flaws from each other
Some hide a lifestyle
Ashamed to show true self
Dressing up like Santa
Where the wife may play the elf
Some men dye their hair and beard
Wear clothes all the rage
Able to fool the crowd
About their actual age
Some wear expensive attire
Drive cars beyond their means
Presenting a wealthy façade
When they’re actually lacking greens
Some have pain they never show
So they smile and make a joke
If they were forced to share
The tears would make them choke
Some have addictions
To camouflage the hole
Inhabitations they can’t reveal
Locked up in their soul
Don’t we all camouflage?
Things we’d like to say
Things we may be thinking
Things in the fray?
