Biodiversity challenge – Great argus

Display advertising

Another pheasant valley,
Song day,
Argus calling.
Direct male,
Unveils his party piece.
Regales her with a
Tail of two sitars,
All eyes on him,
Including hers.
Makes ocelli
And hopes
His thing with feathers
Gains a purchase on her soul.
Struts his stuff upon the stage
And then is hers.
No more.
Show over,
Time to turn the page.
An empty dance floor
Let’s you know the score.
He called, she heard,
She came, she saw,
She concurred.
Curtain.
Wild applause.
