I was walking round a country lane enjoying the exercise
When I spotted a dog staring at me, I was taken by surprise
It resembled a dog to start with I was about to tick the box
When I realised it wasn't a dog in fact it was a very young fox
He refused to move and stood his ground staring me in the face
His appearance here in the middle of the lane interrupted my pace
I reduced my speed and slowly approached but he refused to shift
So I spoke to him in a quiet voice convinced that he'd get my drift
Then I was completely baffled because his little jaw began to move
He began to mumble in a strange way as if he had something to prove
I swear he was talking so I dropped to my knees and I lent him an ear
I said "Go ahead my friend, say what you want, you have nothing to fear"
That's how I became an animal lover, the fox and I still meet in the lane
He keeps me in touch with life in the animal world every now and again
When I think back to the U.K. days of fox-hunting It feels terrible to think
Humans would have been the reason for friendly foxes to become extinct.

Not really sure where this one came from but here in the UK we seem to be causing our wild life to diminish as we keep on invading their living areas.
