Thy name is Condescension

The Ostrich buries its head in the sand smug in a belief ill-conceived

The toad croaks seeking carnal pleasures oblivious to the muffled hiss of death

The unwitting crow breaks its back and beak feeding an infant under a mistaken notion that it is its offspring

Ah! Pavonine your insidious seduction is not restricted to the animal kingdom alone

Man has made preening such a prerogative that he may as well take a universal patent on the attribute

Vain, Pretentious Wretch.
