The Big Garuda

A self-proclaimed bird king
pilfering from the aviaries
of more exotic birds; a fledgling
whose unwieldy crown varies
with each random feather
accrued covetously and slipshod
and glued slapdash together
so as to appear a magnificent bird god,
despite having used rank refuse
from many bird cages to bind
together his tasteless ruse:
he is not unique among his kind.
