To celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Rooster,

January 28th, 2017 thru’ February 16th, 2018.

 

Welcome home Chinese Fire Rooster!

For jaded Earthlings; a libidinous boost.

Feathering nests; ruling the *[hygge/koselig]* roost.

 

Louder and prouder than Leonine peacocks

Early riser, competes with your alarm clock.

 

Unruly awakener! Heralding the dawn chorus.

Provoking Chicagoan Bulls’ horns. Awakening languid Taurus.

 

Electrifies quirky, egg-centric Aquarians

Breathing new life into cynical humanitarians.

 

’cause Rooster’s worst nightmare? Hemmed in the coop!

Seasoned as a Sunday roast OR soul-less chicken soup.

 

Oriental protector: geek chicks; organic free-range hens.

Fired-up! Roaming Sagittarian fields, every now and again.

 

[Breaking news…]

Gonna be a year of w.t.f. What the Dickens?

Queen Bey giving birth to twin chickens!! […ends]

 

Chinese Fire Rooster:

Cocksure and raucous just like the Rolling Stones

Wants your total mind-body; caramelised love bones.

 

Wears pinstriped corsets, revealing hipster jeans

Fancies Joan Jett ‘gainst the jukebox, by any means…

 

Swaggers and struts; Harlem reshuffles.

Pecks and preens; dress-shirt ruffles.

 

Walks the walk and talks the “squawk”

Cock-a-hoop protester at the #women’s march

From downtown Sydney to upstate New York.

 

Red Indian headgear amok the Aries warpath

“Doesn’t count chickens” until the aftermath

 

Of Mercury, Venusian, Jupiter-Libran retrogrades

Severely testing relationships. Neptunian escapades.

 

For what strangest feet? Clawing Virgoan Earth.

“Rooster Booster” marking territory; marking turf [$]

 

Don’t leave Rooster headless in the heat of the night

Flapping ruffled feathers. Morning glory not pretty sight!

 

Hands off rustlers! Curated eggs aflame

Or be shot down just like Jesse James.
