my take on the classic fable of the fox and the crow

Once a fox, tired and hungry

was walking down a street,

when he came across a crow on a tree

holding a piece of meat.

His mouth watered at the site of the meat,

He thought, " I must think of a plan

to snatch the meat from the foolish crow

as cunningly as I can."

Aloud he said to the oblivious crow :

"Dear me ! How lucky am I !

To come across such a great person

As I was walking by !

Really Mr. Crow, how famous you are !

As famous as one can be

Of your melodious singing everyone is a fan,

and one them is me."

The crow was suprised

and his ego inflated

as the fox went on and on ,

"But dear Mr. Crow,

I want to hear you sing.

So for me please sing a song."

The crow now eager to prove himself

opened his mouth to sing,

Down fell the piece of meat near the fox

who gave the crow a hearty wink !

"So dear Mr. Crow," he said in a mocking voice.

"You can go on singing if you like,

For I have got what I wanted,

I will go and take a lovely bite !"
