    Poetic licence… ah! Vive la libertรฉ ๐Ÿ™‚ I absolutely love the word “weasel” as well as the animal ๐Ÿ™‚ In French we call it “belette” which sounds nice.
    It reminds me of a famous french song, “la jument de Michao”, the chorus of which is :

    J’entends le loup, le renard et LA BELETTE
    J’entends le loup et le renard chanter

    If interested, listen to the song, I like the sound & rhythm of this chorus.
    Needless to say I love your poem ๐Ÿ™‚

    The lyrics are a bit surrealistic, (singing fox, wolf, weasel…) but I love them!

      I love the song, Frederic. I was simply captivated by both the tune and the lyrics. It brought memories flooding back of Dan Ar Braz. Perhaps you know of him? Wonderful guitar and violin. Weasel, balette – I love both these words, although the latter feels ‘kinder’ than the mean weasel scurrying around in that way successful carnivores do. You’ve inspired me now…
      Thank you for taking the trouble to find the video on Youtube. x
