Dichotomy

‘Consider the imbalance between a fox and the English hunters who chase it. The one weighs a few kilos and the other has the combined weight of horses, men, and dogs!  You would never think this is a worthy contest, with the fox having any chance to escape.

‘But the fox has one thing going for it; it has cunning. By the use of cunning it can sometimes manage to get away.

‘So, little brother, when we make our run for the border tonight, remember we are foxes; then the whole army, all the way up to the Oppressor, will not catch us.’
