Rooster for sale

I can't remember what took me down to the Santarém riverfront last week, but I found myself admiring this beautiful rooster, which was having a look around him from its cage. I wondered how far he traveled by riverboat to get to Santarém. I wondered how many hens he might have entertained in his short lifespan. I wondered who bought him. I wondered if he might still be romancing some hens here in the city. I suspect that he ended up on someone's table for lunch.
