artifact description
Do you hear gobbles from a haunted voice?Feather cape, swan-like neck, on stage no more-I, Sir Gerstle, gallant turkey, hero,Swashbuckling star of street studded drama,Deceased. Thespian whose sharp crimson beakAnd golden feet, leaped, fencing and dashing,Darting between moving cars, trucks, and bikesEarning their wrath while I gave you a laugh,Aviary Aristophanes –gone. ~excerpt from poem
