Coil of Steel, Ready for dinner.
He moved in stealth mode through the wood
Putting one foot down on the uneven ground
But making sure that he did not snap a twig,
What he looked forward to was a grass field in front
He could not let himself frighten his foe into a wrong call.
Now he stared in front and his head did not move,
Dinner was there and he was making ground toward it,
The dinner had not noticed that he was moving,
All his energy now went into making no noise
And making sure his feet went into grass
So that he could sprint to the finish line and get what he came for.
Not thinking of the farmer’s chickens,
He had tried to get in but, well let’s say that the cockerel was in good voice,
Or the partridge in the field that woken up half of the land,
Not something that he had planned.
Now he could almost smell the kill and dinner in his mouth,
The clay was beginning to crumble beneath his feet, but he would win,
Dinner had no chance now of getting home,
The bone was his he had won and he licked his lips,
He picked up his tail ready to run the last few feet to capture dinner for his brood,
His wife in a mood but hey! She was heavy again she was waiting,
This last lot were hard to feed at times, they wanted more every day.
Now he was within sight of the fur he could see the heart making it bump beneath,
And the beating would soon stop and he could eat and so could his family.
Then a squawk goes up and the rabbit looks down the eyes of the fox,
Coming toward him and he ran he weaved his way back to his hole
The fox looked at the hawk and sneered at him he would have his revenge he knew,
But the field was bare and his tummy rolled with hunger,
He started all over again looking across the field of grass and saw they had all gone,
He walked toward home head held low but wait,
A small animal was walking past the river he was nibbling at a reed,
The fox’s eyes stared at it and he moved on in small steps,
Sprung body like a coil of steel and ready oh yes him was ready for dinner...
