“An Umbrella Holding Fox”
If I could have one pet or friend,
I would want an umbrella holding fox.
He would courageously keep my fears
In a chest, under key and lock.
A pal and a companion,
Ever through the rain,
To sit on my shoulder
And help banish the pain.
I would sing
And he would hum.
A merry duo, together
louder than thunder’s drum.
The lighting would flee
Fearful of our ballad.
The chill? Banished!
A terror suddenly invalid.
Into the storm we would charge,
Umbrella held high,
And we would combat the darkness
Brave and, from head to toe, dry.
An odd choice he may seem.
But, however, and alternatively,
Sometimes, it takes something odd
To be strong, and live life boldly.
