In A Busy Road

In a busy road of big crowd
That bird, one among the blue-proud
Who, wood-sent here came in groups cowed
Caught in traffic
Badly trailing its fear aloud
Cracking outloud

Running here and there around and
Between cars and busses screamed and
Screamed and panicked its weak move banned
Peacock forlorn
Wonder, how came else cries' demand
Peacock flew gone
