The Foxes and the Grapevine
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
and into the vineyard she hastily did jog.
She reached for the grapes that were held high
and when she couldn’t, it did sigh,
“Those grapes are sour – not for me to hog.”
Saying so she went her way
Searching for a different choice of prey.
But following her, came another fox
who entered by jumping across the gate’s locks
and sighting grapes – he entered the fray.
He saw the grape being rejected as sour
padded to the vine on his feet numbering four.
The foundation of the plant had been made weak
by the attempts of the fox who first did seek
And to his lair with his bounty, he did soar.
And so the new moral of the tale
Is that you must never stop even if you fail.
Even if you are tripped and fail: Do not terminate.
For a seed has to fall, before it does germinate!
Because what you stand to lose, another does nail.
