Syndic Special Issue ~ Election Day 2020 “The Fox”

The Fox

By Long Island Poet Joan Digby

In the medieval Bestiary

the fox is a symbol of evil

duplicity and fraud

his red coat and coal-black eyes

projections of the devil

burning in hellfire

 

Our coal-loving demon

is but a hologram

a projection of fake-Fox

News with his fake-red hair

and trumped up speeches

he can barely read

concocted by fake reporters

scratching his tail for money

 

Before long the Fox-puppet

will become an ornament

a collar or hat of fake fur that lasts

but a season and then  is tossed away
