Proud peacock is one thing . . . but a jealous one?
Yup… in this fable by Australian writer Owen Roberts, we learn how one Peacock’s jealous and vain ways get him into a bit of a ruffle.
In a lush and bountiful woodland, teeming with magnificent wildlife, lives one vain and jealous peacock. Oh, how he adores himself, his beautiful feathers, so elegant and vibrant.
Surely, he should reign as the most beautiful in the land, should he not?
He ponders, and plots, and plays with some ideas to ensure that he indeed has no competition from the many magnificent birds of the forest. A devious plan is set in motion . . . one where he will be the most colourful bird in all the land.
But at what price?
