The clever fox will run with the breeze

orange coloured coat and hay coloured eyes,

through the slick streams and tumbling trees

run from the pounding dog pack cry.

The barking fades and the clever fox hides

lurid dogs convey the starry landscape,

streched out in the summer's sunrise

the clever fox's cunning escape.

No blooding for an adolescent

he saved himself and kept his tail,

rolling in cowpat breaking up his scent

sprinting away from those red coats from hell.

even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.
