The Fox and The Moon

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.
