My animal's favorite color is blue, and this is what happens....
A COLORFUL RITUAL
(Limerick/Non-fiction)

When a blue-footed booby pair meet
they’re attracted to each other’s feet.
Will a love be ignited
or be unrequited?
The hues of their blues now compete.

First he flashes each foot for the chance
she’ll be smitten and opt for romance.
But it’s not just one way
as he too has a say:
to pursue her or pass on a glance.

Yes, their feet will determine the way
their relationship ends on the day.
As their color’s a witness
to parenthood fitness,
the bluer the better they say.
