The Sartorial Fox

A small rhyme for grandchildren

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.
