Chuck looks slender and charming wearing his black tux, white silk shirt, black tie, black rose boutonnière on his lapel , and polish black patent leather shoes; drives up in his black Cadillac. Chuck, a Texas oil tycoon, is a character, drinking a glass of Black Crow whiskey. Charlene, his foxy lady in black dress and sable, diamonds woven in her black hair, playfully flirting sips champagne. Black twilight night emergent rays cast twinkling stars through crystal chandeliers. Cheerlessly, the black raven spies. Chaffinch tips it blue-grey cap, chirps under the black shadows of the trees. Black sleek cat with white lighting eyes, lurking in the moonlight, sighs. Black gold drilling, is Chuck’s conversation with his chairman. As music plays, Charlene dances with his partner. 8/25/2021 not for contest just musing

Lol! A nasty triangle in my opinion. A tycoon, a foxy lady and his partner, on one side. A ravenous raven, a delicate bird and a nasty cat. Who will win?
