Peacock and Country Mouse

My friends tease me
call me a proud peacock,
a country mouse, contrarian

Hailed proud because I am reserved,
Disdainfully a country mouse as
I stay contented within
limited precincts.

Enjoying their taunts to the bit,
chuckling, I confide to no one else
than me, a peacock is virtuous,
secured is the country mouse.

Minding not what others talk
I carry on with pride.
My style of living focuses
on discipline and sincerity,
