As birds go also a cock looks stunning,
his male domination heard by his cry.
And usually all the hens come running
should he so want without saying why.
In the chicken run hens reach a pole position
and maintain a pecking order of sorts
deciding not only their place in nutrition
but also their rank close to master cock’s sports.
A cock-and-bull story presents a false tale
of wondrous adventures and heroic fights.
Of course the antagonists are mainly male
who cannot resist their prestige and their might.
