Poetry: “Mating rituals”

This feels a fitting day for this. 😛

***~***~***~***

Mating rituals

See us preen
And prance
Decked all out
In fancy feathers
Making silly sounds
Taking measure
Dancing ’round
Seeking flaws
Beneath that sheen
Powered by
Reptile urges
Selfish genes powered up
Pretty gestures
Gathered pebbles
Placed in front
Prospective mates
Goals achieved
We might then settle
Or just head out
And start anew
