Fox (Photo credit: Natasha Lloyd)

She was sly and she was crafty
She was clever, she was cold
There were only lies and traps in
All the stories that she told

She was daughter to deception
She was misdirection’s queen
She was never on the straight path
She just hovered in between

If she ever felt too lonely
She would never question why
She preferred to be superior
To be effortless, not try

She was crafty like a fox now
She was dark, essentially
And I guess I should have known then
That she’d get the best of me
