THE QUESTION

by John Yeo

   The peahen looks on in wonder as two peacock suitors vie for her attention, so different in looks and size and appearance.

  The dazzling white peacock was cocksure of winning the ladies hand, everybody was stunned at his handsome appearance. Not a feather in disarray to spoil his courtship display, a beautiful youthful bird.
  Standing next to him was the competition a wise old bird who preened with unlimited resources and a reputation for looking after the ladies.     A famous wise old bird. Food and shelter would be luxurious here, her children would want for nothing.
    Which bird won the Peahens hand?

 

   Jim, a stunningly handsome well built youth, was a ladies man, desired by many ladies, in love with life, when he fell in love with a desirable beautiful lady.
   Rick Roller, an ageing very famous singer, was also in love with her, and spent vast sums of money on his appearance, preening to seduce her. Money would be plentiful here and the children would want for nothing.

    Which bird won the ladies hand?
