all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

A Fable

fictis jocare nos memenerit fabulis. 
—Phaedrus, Fabulae Aesopiarum, I, Prol., 6.*

Chicken Little’s Coop

Hens wanted to ban
powered works of evil man.
Thus the leader’s plan:

after putting locks,
by force, on each chicken’s box,
give keys to the fox.

The hen-houses applaud
their dear leader’s pricey fraud.
Let foxes maraud.

*  “Remember that I ever joke about some non-existing folk.”
