GUEST POST // If only the muddy fox lives by Tony Single

‘tween tree an’ hoof an’ tooth ’n’ nail
red’s arrow will they not derail
he done gone blend, all speck ‘n’ light
slim pickin’s, gots to eat t’night

they spoil the vine, dash lover’s phial
they snappin’ hearts an’ twig an’ stile
but red done fly, fleet almond eyes
all flashin’ grin an’ tooth ‘n’ wile

red be lookin’ to his own tail
cut for cunnin’ so’s not to fail
no limb of law e’er tap his door
tag end dodgin’ them musket bites

foxy lox, puddin’ and pie
steal breath an’ kiss, prey, don’t die
in dogger’s bay he goad ‘n’ play
slim pickin’s, gots to eat t’night

but foxy lox, he now in the dock
he done get got
