Comments about John W. (Coyote) Fox
No Family Ties
No family ties to make me stay,
no personal connections.
No links to past times slow me down,
or give pause for reflection.
No clannish feelings do relate;
no kinship claims upon me.

and for all things I hold dearly.
In ages old my forebears lived
in hovels dark and dirty.
An unkempt life, but common so,
and no one lived past thirty.
The landsmen practiced treachery
on one and all surrounding.
