Fox

The fox went
down to the forest pond
and
stopping for a drink
saw its reflection

At this point
something profound and
metaphorical happened
conveniently encapsulating
a pat little lesson

Scholars wrote
long articles on the fox
and explained its
significance with
improbably complex words

The fox itself
ended up on a highway
where it was hit
by a passing car
and died instantly
