He’s a player…

wearing his bling–

silver chain with the crucifix,

gold rings on his fingers,

diamond earring–

to impress the ladies,

strutting his stuff like a rooster.

  1. a brilliant poem…thus really was so well executed…you made it so visual..strutting around, full of bling, and then you nailed it with the pciture…a cocky little so and so…..well done…cheers pete

  2. Lmao those were great lines very cocky with the whole bling bling thing and so true but hilarious because the pic of the rooster killed me. Thanks for making me laugh so hard and for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh that is so clever and too true – have seen the “strut”
    “Bling bling” “cock a doodle doo”

    thanks for sharing this one with One Shot

    Moon love

  4. This was great, even without the wonderful shot of the cock’s tail, it vividly showed the ego.

    I’d love to see a few more lines. As it is, it feels like a poke at the guy, or the first line of a story-poem. The guy with the diamond in his ear, does he support fighting cocks and do he and the gang get busted? Does the cockerel go free? Or is there a tragedy in here? Just a suggestion…

  5. What a great shot of the rooster – showing off his strut to perfection. I love the tie-in, Teresa. I’ve met a few cocky types in my day – both animal and human. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Oh, and in the chinese calendar, my hubby is a rooster – lol!)

  6. roosters have some kinda attitude…a playful poem though i often find hidden beneath the bling and the tude is someone hiding from something…nice one shot.
