In the morning post

The Stoat received

A fine, for a minor transgression.

This is absurd!

Said The Stoat to The Bird

I’ve not been fined for this before!

The Bird in reply,

As to why you ask ‘why?’

There’s a new leader right now.

Have you not heard?

The Stoat stood bemused,

Bewildered, confused,

Then it struck: EPIPHANY!

The new leader had fed

Lies into the heads

Of the creatures that are now after me!
