Lament for a Fox

Taking a walk after Mass today, I noticed a dead fox by the roadside. Apparently hit by a car, but still beautiful. I composed the following rhyme for poor beast:

Your cunning was no match, poor fox,
For the speed of the iron box.
Ban cars. Bring back cart and ox.

  1. Ode to an Armadillo
    We drive by twice to wonder at the creature
    Alive he hid by day but last night he was was struck
    His armored shell could not withstand a Texas pickup truck.
