Feathers

Conflict pervades, persists,
as those without influence
seek to exert what little power they have.

To fan out their feathers
and display their strength 
to those with whom they would mate.

Those who suffer,  however, are
those with no feathers to fan.

The victims of the ambition
of feathered fops,  they are
defenceless, unless,
standing together,  they fight.

No hollow display of plumage can withstand
the power of their unity.

Together they can win.
