Ready [82 words]

Colorful pieces lion

It was nearly dusk and he adorned himself with jewels and feathers. Dancing in front of the mirror, he felt giddy with confidence. Surely they would see him tonight for the king that he was, instead of ignoring him as usual. The colorful accoutrements made him feel regal and powerful, bold enough to take on an army of detractors. Okay then! Onward with his new identity as a conquering lion…

He was ready to read his first poem to a live audience.
