The Little Red Fox

The Little Red Fox

A Poem by Joshua McNay
"

Just a little something I wrote while at work. About a little Red Fox.

"

This is the tale of a little red fox

The little red fox loved his red socks

If you would ask him he’d say they rocked

If you didn’t like them he might be shocked

The little red fox's name was Willie

When he would dance in his socks he looked kind of silly

He had to wear them, because outside was so chilly

 

The little red fox had a friend who was a tortoise

His friend was named Morris

Morris took great care of his shell

He would wax and polish to protect it well

Willie and Morris were an unlikely pair

They met when at lunch and Willie decided to share

Friends till the end they both would shout

Often times they’d laugh, but forget what about

 

One day the two were walking in the mall

When Willie noticed a sale, socks! 50% off all

His face lit up and he couldn’t believe

But he and Morris had a plan, he couldn’t just leave

A sale! A sale Morris! Do you think we have time?

I think we can spare a few minutes my dear friend Willie

The fox darted toward the sale of socks, all of this, all of this for me!

Blue ones, yellow ones, ones with polka dots, oh my! The rack is so tall

The fox was so giddy to try on them all

 

So many socks to pick and choose

Add in the sale and how could he lose?

Time’s up! Morris proclaimed

The fox didn’t get to try them all, boy what a shame

He gathered up the socks that he liked

A bag full of socks, the fox was psyched!

Ok Morris, where to now? The fox asked curiously

Oh don’t you worry, soon you will see.

 

They walked past many stores, on their way

Where was he taking me? Morris just wouldn’t say.

Ok stop here, Morris said.

As he proceeded to place a blindfold on the fox’s head

It’s so dark Morris, I really can’t see

That’s kind of the point, you just have to trust me

Ok said the fox, who was not afraid of the dark

When I open my eyes there better not be a shark!

Morris laughed at his friend the fox

If I did it would be in a tank with super secure locks


Ok were here, you can take it off now.

The blindfold came off and he let out a wow!

All his friends were there

Even the grumpy old Mr. Hare

Happy birthday Willie! They all shouted together

A tear rolled down his face, you did all this for me?

Of course my friend, we want to celebrate you!

We want to show our thanks for all that you do

The little red fox who cared for socks

Was loved by so many, and that truly rocks.

I honest-to-God could not stop smiling as I read this! I truly love Dr. Seuss and this is something he could really have thought about!!! I have not gotten to read my other submissions yet but this sets the bar pretty high! Thank You so much!

I have actually had some people around my work who read it tell me the same thing. I wish I was a be.. read more
I think the poem is adorable!
Unlike grumpy Mr. Hare, I can't find anything about it that's deplorable.
It's nice to see a poem that is so fun and upbeat.
And buying all those socks would be quite the feat!
