Coaxing Fox - Poem by md.abdul mannan

Once an old man
Told a tale,
Was a fox
Without a tail
For stealing hen
Was sent to jail.
Then he looked
Very broken and rubbish
Addressed his fellows
As Ignorant and novice
For having their
Long tall tail
Being envious and pale
Asked them also
To cut off their one
To be smart and
Have reputation
Tail is ugly
Needless dirty,
All he said
In that party.
Out of the meeting
One said, ’’ ho ho!
You have no tail
Want us do so’’.
