Two chickens were showing dominance over another chicken on a Sunday near dusk in the backyard of a house in Paramaribo, Suriname. I asked chatGPT to write a compelling story with a National Geographic narration about the situation as it unfolds.
In the waning light of a Paramaribo Sunday, the drama of the natural world unfolds in a microcosm of feathers and clucks.

In the end, as dusk claims the sky, the hoerarchy is settled— for now. In the world of chickens, as in nature, there is a fluidity to power, a constant ebb and flow that is both relentless and necessary.
