A little commentary about the things she doesn't think we know. Young women can be so naive.

Fluttering your feathers, all out on display
Across the room, your intensions splayed
A thousand eyes follow your every encouragment
No space for dignity.
Concerned calls and truthful tongues bounce from wall to wall
You're deaf to all but what you crave, so ruffle away their thoughts
Oh peacock if you only knew, whats real;
You'd shake them off
But tonight it's in the stars
The one will prove us wrong.

Peacock, how I pitty you, look bright but fading fast
The confidence you reek is false and resembles ignorance.
As for this mate, your pruning for;
It's no more one, but many

Soon you'll find out, fickle fowl
Despirate poachers will take any.
Proud and pretensious, vulger and vain
Peacock, you'll never change.
