Vulpes

October 19, 2017



Skulking
about

Fox News
twists their tales

They whine and Bark
their agenda
and
piss on trees


The leash
lands
hard
in the hole
and assumes
the position
defending its claim

Watching us
dance again
just in  4
4
 time

as
the III 
looms
large

we foxtrot 
around the hurdles
quickstep
the
catch

Wonder
Perhaps it is 
finally
time
for
crafty action

end the orange seige
with the tempered touch 
of
a lady's glove

Perhaps then
we will be safe
in our deep knowing den

The Earth
can be trusted

The Earth
takes all secrets
to the grave

*A group of foxes is referred to as a skulk, leash, or earth.[3][4]
