Ode to Junglefowl

Gallus gallus and again gallus! 
Crazy redhead with relatives across
Sumatra, Java, Vietnam, India, Bangledesh, Myanmar, and Thailand.

Show us your fancy feathers Mr. Gallus 
and waltz her to the end of love.
For all our sakes, say yes Ms. Gallus!

We have known you nigh 8000 years!
We took you around the world with us
And put one in every pot.

Now onto my plate and 
into my stomach,
My dear, beloved chicken!
