Jungle Stories

09 Oct
A young red fox lives in the jungle.
Sly as foxes go, it's an artful SOB.
Being little compared to other scavengers,
it promotes itself as just and equitable,
encouraging gullible bush animals.
A peacock lives nearby. It, too, depends
upon its plastic reputation and distinct fandangle.
The fox and peacock always appear
to be at each other's throats.
The truth is they are professional
liars who simply lie on opposite ends
of the spectrum. The hostility between
them is as artificial as they are.
