#Barathon 2/7 Deadly Sins: Pride


The colorful peacock somewhere, was the meanest of them all
It demeaned the crow, and called it names
Far somewhere, during the hunting games
A hunter spotted, a burst of colors
Bang! his rifle hollers
That was the moment, when the peacock and its pride had a downfall
