WHEN PERCY FLOPS


Percy the peacock flaunts his colored tail, Spreading gold wings like a Japanese fan To excite a mate, a future peahen Along the hall where children watch him sail. Once, thrice, Percy struts a handsome display With eyes blue, he looks around for a pick. And ladies murmur of avian topic; While they form a circle nearing his way. The prettiest one robed in aqua-green Shows interest while Percy loudly drools, That flappers open acting super cool! Brilliant her poise, tall as he, and serene. Ready to capture his one, perfect bride Wham! Percy flops on the hall’s wet cement. An honest proposal almost denied, But maiden takes the chance, how heaven sent! Animals Alive Contest of Carol Eastman 7/18/2014 nette onclaud

    Is there a message between these lines to one as proud as a peacock to not get so full of himself.. That he hasn't captured his prize just yet and in fact might stumble and make a fool of himself? Just a thought ;)

    What a blooper for a proud peacock. The girl must have been turned off. A delightful poem like this does not come often, Nette. Brings out the kid in me, funny!

    I would hope that she overlooks his little flop and still becomes his bride..If she can't overlook a minor incident she wasn't meant for him...wonderful story nette...hugs Tim
