The Fox That Betrayed The Wolf

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.



Once upon a time in a land far far away

Lived a great wolf called Wakeem

This great dark wolf was the leader of the land

And guarded it like the great Aslan

He was a magical beast that had the spirit of the forest within

But from conception the sly old fox wanted to rid of him

Wakeem the wolf had many great enemies that wanted him dead

So evil on the land of the good could be spread

They devised a simple scheme that involved the red devil fox

So they could get Wakeem in the death box

The plan had been made and now it was time to execute

The fox which the wolves homed simply did not tell the truth

He told wakeem that a great war was coming from the Crocs of the east

And that their army was magnificent and they would kill every beast

Wakeem did not have an army as powerful as theirs

So he told the fox to go get the magical mares

They would fly all the beast away from the battle

So not even a rat’s tail would rattle

The fox told rakeem to come quickly as the mares have disappeared

But when Wakeem went to look only the enemy appeared

The Crocs threw 30 gold pieces at the fox for a betrayal well done

He picked up the dirt gold and began to run

The Crocs circled Wakeem to take his life

Some with spears and some with knife

But Wakeem had a little surprise for them

He howled and instantly appeared his wolf friends

The leader of the crocs who wanted to slew Wakeem had been vanquished

And soon the crocs diabolical kingdom demolished

The red fox was found cowering clutching on to his gold

And was banished from the land forever into the blistering cold

Now the land was free from evil again

And Wakeem reigned supreme
