AN APPEAL FOR A FOX FIX
The Fox this year seems foxier than ever,
And students in despair say he’ll come “Never!”
So many times they’ve played Fox Day Roulette,
Put homework blithely off, then lost the bet,
That they’re up to their necks in deep doo-doo—
And, Mr. President, they’re blaming you!
Perhaps you think a lesson’s to be learned:
That gamblers will inevitably get burned,
While those who stick most steadily to their last
Will triumph over prodigals downcast
And foiled by their feckless improvidence
(Which, given their adolescence, is immense).
So put them, please, out of their misery—
Let Fox Day ease their immaturity.
