Desert Fox

Desert Fox

The desert sand skiffed about,

For miles and miles upon end

It seemed to never run out

 

Until one day the sand would be broken

By the new animal to the lands,

The sand now seemed in the desert foxes hands

 

Every movement,mirage, and dune

Would be checked twice just for good measure

In case the tigers of the fox waited with pleasure

 

The fox was an interesting creature

Each moment it was seen,

It gained a new feature

 

People thought it was abandoned by the world

But it had a different view,

That the world had never took you

 

After years of trying to root the fox

Hope seemed all but lost,

Until one day the sands began again

 

For the fox had gone and left no trace,

Except for the thoughts

Pictured on its face

 

Now after the years have gone by

Some would try what the fox had done

But they all failed one by one

 

Then again desert sand skiffed about,

For miles and miles upon end

It never ran out.
