A weekly piece of rhymed verse

The Sartorial Fox

A fox without his shoes and socks

Is incorrectly dressed;

His jacket should be laundered

And his trousers should be pressed.

For, hunting in the woodland,

He might meet a deer or vole,

A marmoset or hedgehog,

A tortoise or a mole.

Imagine his embarrassment should

Such a thing occur,

And he passed by and said, “Good day”,

In just his under-fur.
