Author: Joseph Ogbonna
Feathers arranged in an astonishing
array of colours,
brightest of all,
and uniquely adorned for
a century's wedlock in
a bird's haven.
That is I, the Peacock.
The angel with elegance that you
An epitome of standards coveted by
Endowed by nature with neither
mascara nor lipstick.
But having features elusive that
pageants in a lifetime ache for.
