by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

I know you have fallen in love
with the proud star Canopus of Carina.
You hope to become nicer,
that is the reason
you always change your colors.

Sorry for your illusions,
I must be sincere:
you are just a starry lizard,
and Canopus will always be
above you.

But ... dream, poor Chamaeleon!
Who knows ...?
