' The Wolf And The Fox... '

A Wolf and A Fox
Roamed A Southern Wood
Most Folks, Who Caught A Glimpse
Said, ‘They’s Up To No Good! ‘ …

But, Few Brave Enough To Follow
Their Trail, Into The Night
Past The Thickets and The Holler’
And Thru The Swamp, Saw A Sight …

The Wolf and The Fox
Swam A River, By Moonshine
Jumped Across A Dam
To Escape A Tracker’s Line …

And There On The Wildlife Side
Wolf, Was Kicking His Heels, To Fox’s Trot!
Dancing ‘Round in Circles, With Glee
‘Bout Huntin’, and What They Got …

There Was Smoked Ham In A Hole
Crawdads, Catfish-Creole and Plump Lil’ Critters
They Were Herding Buffalo-Wings and Other Fowl-Things
And Frog-Legs, In Hot-Water, Corn-Pong-Fritters …

(now, Fox, had tried a Vegetarian-Dinner
but … It Just Wasn’t In ‘er!)
and Wolf Howled, Com’ On! As The Moonshine Shone
on Fresh, Collard-Greens, Not Too Bitter

So, Rancher and Farmer, Don’t Be Alarmed
If You See The Wolf and A Fox
Just Leave ‘em Alone … They Mean You No Harm …
(Unless You Got An Ox –

‘cause Oxtails is a Favorite of Fox!)

A Wolf and A Fox
Roamed A Southern Wood
Now, Those Who Run In Their Circles
Finally Understood …
