T’was the day after Christmas, and all along the street,
The kids were exhausted and most still asleep.
The parents were quietly savoring the peace.
Little did they know that in the next yard,
Two locals in a standoff were on their guard.
The local cat patrol, Snoop Kitty, some say,
Was not about to let some backwoods punk have his way
Yes! A standoff ensued in that backyard,
Between a fox and a tough cat standing guard!
Some moments were tense, others quite slow,
But the fox finally realized who had to go.
Saving his pride the best that he could,
The fox slunk away to try some other ‘hood!
