Camouflage

by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Camouflage is all the rage.
Ladies in their fight with age -
Soldiers in their fight with foes -
Demagogues who mask and pose
In the guise of statesmen--girls
Black of eyes with golden curls -
Politicians, votes in mind,
Smiling, affable and kind,
All use camouflage to-day.
As you go upon your way,
Walk with caution, move with care;
Camouflage is everywhere!

from Hello, Boys! by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1919)
