Life, society /
The fox looked up toward the moon
And thought "I could jump that high."
It hadn't even occurred to her,
That foxes couldn't fly.
So she searched for the highest mountain
And climbed her way to the top.
She said to the moon,
"We'll be together soon!"
And she refused to stop.
Taking a leap, out she reached
But her feet fell back to the ground.
Puzzled still, she didn't feel,
That she should be stuck earthbound.
So she followed the moon,
Around and around.
Until her paws were sore.
Searching the skies with stars in her eyes,
She looked up at him once more...
Defeated she asked,
"Must you move so fast?!"
Always fading out of frame.
Grinning he mused,
"I must have been confused."
"I thought we were playing a game."
