The Man with Many Faces (a poem)

The man with many faces
A chameleon he is like
He adapts in many places
He’s always giving advice

His faces change so subtly
It seems only I have noticed
His countenance changes utterly
As a con man, he’s the greatest

I will catch this man in the act
One day, I’ll call him out
I’m not sure how he’ll react
If he’ll run or if he’ll shout

The man with many faces
This predator must be stopped
He’s tricked us for generations
And so far, he’s yet to be caught
