Some people suppress you
They partch you
And reap a disaster
Reeducation for the enfants
Who demanded for an innocent instance

The great commandment
Shows the contempt
Between the world and their
Embarrassing pavement
Believe the scholars
Read the readings
Realize the man who says anything
The great commandment

The needies believe you
They treat you
Like survivors of a disaster
Reeducation for the enfants
Who demanded for an innocent instance
The great commandment

Camouflage is a set of methods of concealment that allows otherwise visible animals, military vehicles, or other objects to remain unnoticed by blending with their environment or by resembling something else. Examples include a leopard's spotted coat, the battledress of a modern soldier and a leaf-mimic butterfly. Camouflage is a form of visual deception; the term probably comes from camouflet, a French term meaning smoke blown in someone's face as a practical joke. more »
