There once was a fox who loved the moon.
She waited and waited for it to loom.
When all of a sudden, there came a boom
Her moon disappeared in the gloom.
The wood around her came down in a crash
When humans came out unabashed.
She ran and ran until she was free
And the moon watched her as she fleed.
The man in the moon showed her the path
Until she was out of the firestorm’s wrath.
