The Courtier

Wow! Is this guy the king or is he the king
Strutting his stuff in a lazuli ruff
Flashing his colours, outshining all others
His strident screech with piercing reach
Crest held erect
In every detail this guy is correct
Yet for all his dazzling eyes
He’s forever grounded, can’t reach the skies
