Fantastic Mr Fox

O I am just a chicken

But very cock-a-hoop:

You make my sinews thicken

When you are near my coop

 

Would make you drool and slaver

To see my chicken legs

I wish that you could have a

Butcher’s at my eggs

 

For you are kind and gentle

And never talk baloney

You never seem judgmental

O my dear Volpone

 

Your paws are soft and pink

Your fur as red as rust

Please God you never sink

To working for a crust

 

The local hounds adore you

So torpid and so tubby

They’ll all be waiting for you

Are grateful you are chubby

 

Yes swish your russet brush

And smooth your well-slicked hair

We layers love to hear your gush

Your counsels of despair

 

O you have so much taste

You love yourself like crazy

We hens have long embraced

The fact you’re fat and lazy
