Foxy Lady Personal Poem  12/1979

History: Christmas gift.  Angie is an inspector at a garment factory.  We belong to the union... so we are sisters in the union.  She wants to be a grandma.  Her son Rick just bought a puppy.  She wants a new shirt for Christmas.

Foxy Lady

'Twas the day after Ricky's announcement to all
That Angie's a grandma of a pup with four paws.
I had been wondering all day and all night:
What would they need for such a small mite?
Then I remembered the booties in delight.
Yep, they were perfect, they were just right.
So I scurried upstairs to fetch them real fast,
Then scurried back down and fell on my a--.
After I recovered, I wrapped them carefully.
As I wrapped them I wondered: Now how can this be?
Why Angie's a lady, she's just like me.
Then it hit me as I lifted the box:
It runs in the family. Of course! Angie's a fox.
Knowing her secret, I turned with a smirk,
Then dashed to the store for her Christmas shirt.
While laughing so hard I inspected it with care
Just to be sure there wasn't a tear.
Then I sat down and wrote this verse,
While in the back of my mind I could hear Angie curse.
But laugh sister Angie, though I cringe at the sound,
For if we are sisters, that makes me part hound.

Written as a Christmas card given with a set of doggie booties and a Foxy Lady T-shirt, to which I attached a tail.
