Prize Capon

How to make you very own capon – from Sears Roebuck 1922

unleashed to strut about
tail feathers waddle and comb
free ranged
cockerel of the run
crowing proud at the sun
snickering fills the coop
all the hens know the truth
gelded rooster you and i
share this designation
prized and emasculated
mostly there but in the end
just a dumb mannequin
no better than plastic
not a real cock at all.
