The Male of A Certain Species

He stands with arrogance. Not a bit of him scraggly or scrawny. The female of his species thinks he's a paragon of malehood. He can make them swoon with a tilt of his head, sigh at the sound of his voice. Females are literally lining up for a sperm donation.

He's well-cared for, people wait on him: serving him at each meal and grooming him to perfection. Life couldn't possibly be better, except that every now and then, he has to face danger: to kill or be killed at a cockfight. I guess it would be tough to be a rooster.
